On January 14, 2020, the York County Bar Association held its Annual Recognition Dinner, acknowledging many attorneys for their dedication over the last year. Recently retired Stock and Leader Attorney Jane Schussler was presented with the 2019 Jane Alexander Award.
The Jane Alexander Award, presented by the Women in Law Committee of the York County Bar, is bestowed to a female resident in York County who has advanced the legal rights of women through example, education, or activism in the legal community.
Jane’s advocacy for women was at the forefront of her practice for over 36 years. She mentored high school girls interested in legal careers through the Leadership York, Future Leaders of York Program. She continues advocating for women today by volunteering with Turning Point Counseling and Advocacy Center, Pappus House, and the York County Community Foundation Women’s Giving Circle. In 2014, Jane was the first and only York attorney to win the York Athena Award presented to a woman in the community who exhibits the qualities of outstanding leadership, professional excellence, community service, and is influential in assisting other women in attaining those qualities. Congratulations, Jane, on all your accomplishments.

The York County Bar Foundation Board of Directors reappointed Managing Partner, Ronald Hershner, as a Director.
