ORANGE COUNTY BAR ASSOCIATION TO PRESENT
SANTA ANA COLLEGE’S SCHOOL OF CONTINUING EDUCATION CITIZENSHIP PROGRAM AND
KIWANIS CLUB OF SANTA ANA WITH THE 2009 LIBERTY BELL AWARD

April 30, 2009 - Newport Beach: On Thursday, April 30, 2009 the Orange County Bar Association (OCBA) will
recognize the partnership of SAC School of Continuing Education Citizenship Program and Kiwanis Club of
Santa Ana by presenting them with the celebrated Liberty Bell Award. The award will be presented at the annual
Law Day Luncheon at 11:30 a.m. at the Turnip Rose in Orange. The Liberty Bell Award is presented annually to
recognize a community service that has strengthened the American system of freedom under law. This honor is
bestowed upon a non-lawyer or organization that has performed outstanding service to his or her community.

This year’s recipients have teamed up to promote and improve the understanding of the benefits and
responsibilities of becoming a United States Citizen through education and community empowerment. By
offering citizenship classes which emphasize an understanding of the Constitution and government institutions,
participants gain a better respect for the law and the courts. Through application workshops they have helped
more than 4,000 individuals with their applications at no charge.

For their dedication to the community and their many accomplishments, they will be awarded the 2009
Liberty Bell Award by the Orange County Bar Association.

The Orange County Bar Association is one of the largest voluntary bars in California. The mission of the
Orange County Bar Association is to enhance the system of justice, to support the lawyers who serve it and to
assist the community served by it.
