Chamber Hands Out Awards At Annual Meeting

The Toccoa-Stephens County Chamber of Commerce recognizes a long-time attorney and judge.

The Chamber awarded Bob Struble the Lifetime Achievement Award during Wednesday’s annual meeting at the Georgia Baptist Conference Center.

Struble was a long-time attorney as well as a Mountain Judicial Circuit Superior Court Judge. He still serves as a Senior Superior Court Judge.

He said nobody achieves success alone.

“My family has given me absolute support all my life,” said Struble. “I would suggest to young people that what you need to do is find people that you can trust, surround yourself with these people, trust them, and work with them.”
