Retirement/Investiture Ceremony Held in Charleston June 20, 2003


In a joint ceremony, Circuit Court Judge Victor A. Rawl retired and a newly elected Circuit Court Judge took office.  The ceremony was held at the Charleston County Courthouse on June 20, 2003.  Judge Rawl's retirement was highlighted by the presentation of his portrait which will hang on the fourth floor of the Judicial Center on Broad Street.  The portrait was painted by Leslie Pratt-Thomas, an artist from Mt. Pleasant, and paid for by local lawyers.

After his portrait was unveiled, Judge Rawl welcomed his replacement Judge Roger M. Young to the circuit court bench.  The oath of office was administered by S.C. Supreme Court Chief Justice Jean H. Toal. Judge Young's children, Miss Grace L. Young and Mr. Roger M. Young, Jr. presented their father with his judicial robe.
