League of Women Voters of Topeka/Shawnee County President Gwen Elliott gave a presentation on the judicial diversity initiative to the School of Social Work, including workers from preschool through high school. Since reaching minority students is a goal of school social workers, the group received information and materials enthusiastically. Ms. Elliott distributed 33 packets to school employees and spouses including a minority practicing attorney and an attorney who does research for the Kansas Supreme Court and the Kansas Court of Appeals.
