Guest Speaker/Program

Today’s program speaker was Justice Carla Wong McMillian of the Supreme Court of Georgia. Justice McMillian was born and raised in Augusta, Georgia. Her presentation was titled “from China to Augusta to the Supreme Court”. Justice McMillian described her family’s immigration from China to Augusta and how Augusta helped her become a Georgia Supreme Court judge. Important places in Augusta included the Chinese Consolidated Benevolent Association of Augusta which was chartered in 1927 and the First Baptist Church. First Baptist had a Chinese Sunday School founded in 1885.

Prior to joining the Supreme Court, Justice McMillian served on the Court of Appeals, where she was appointed by Governor Nathan Deal and took office in 2013. With her election the following year to that court, Justice McMillian became the first Asian American to be elected to a statewide office in Georgia. Justice Carla Wong McMillian was appointed to the Supreme Court of Georgia by Governor Brian Kemp, taking office on April 10, 2020

Bill led us in reciting the four-way test and then adjourned the meeting.
