In June, 2001, Mark received the Northern Kentucky BarAssociation’s “Friend of the Legal Profession Award” for his service and outstanding contributions to the justice system throughout his career.

This honor, presented annually to a non-lawyer, recognized Mark’s lifetime achievements on behalf of citizens to ensure their access to and fair treatment within the judicial system. One of the greatest personal tributes to Mark came in 2004 from the Kentucky House of Representatives when the Commonwealth’s legislators recognized and commended Mark for his lifetime achievements. House members from both sides of the aisle paid an ardent tribute to Mark for his tireless integrity and perseverance that has earned him the respect and regard of his fellow citizens, not only in his professional career but as a private citizen, as well.
