Lawrence "Larry" Lute Memorial Award
In 2008, Lawrence (Larry) Lute, bailiff in the Scioto County Common Pleas Court & Region G Director, was awarded an Outstanding Service Award. Larry had been battling cancer for some time but continued to work under adverse conditions just so fellow employees would not have to pick up his workload. He worked in pain but still worked, only missing a few days while in the hospital for treatments. He encouraged the entire board to the point that the Outstanding Service Award was renamed in his honor.
