Health System deputy general counsel nominated as Fellow of the Cleveland Metropolitan Bar Foundation

Shannon Fogarty Jerse, deputy general counsel for the Sisters of Charity Health System and general counsel to St. Vincent Charity Medical Center, has been nominated to become a Fellow of the Cleveland Metropolitan Bar Foundation (CMBF).

Nominations are extended to those who have contributed significantly to the advancement of justice in Greater Cleveland and demonstrated the highest standards of integrity and professionalism. Being nominated is an honor reserved for select attorneys and others in the legal profession. As the letter to Jerse stated, “Being a Fellow of the CMBF is recognition of your stature as a highly respected leader in the legal community.”

The Cleveland Metropolitan Bar Foundation (CMBF) is the charitable fundraising arm of the Cleveland Metropolitan Bar Association. It raises critical dollars for the association’s nationally recognized "Lawyers Giving Back" public outreach and pro bono legal service programs. Each year, nearly 1,000 attorneys support these programs with volunteer service. The programs promote education and workforce development, social justice, the arts and non-profit organizations.

St. Vincent Charity is a ministry of the Sisters of Charity Health System.
