Judge Camille Vecchiarelli, Justice of the Peace, Dayton Township Justice Court, was honored with the 2015 Judge of the Year award, which was presented at the Nevada Judges Limited Jurisdiction seminar in Mesquite.
The award was formally given to Judge Vecchiarelli by last year’s honoree, Judge Alan Tiras of the Incline Village Township Justice Court. Vecchiarelli will pass on the honor to the next Nevada Judge of the Year.
In her acceptance speech, Judge Vecchiarelli said that she was humbled and honored to receive the award. She also stated, “I am speechless and for those who know me, that is a hard thing to do.”
Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, James Hardesty, also presented Vecchiarelli and 10 other Nevada judges with Certificates of Achievement in Judicial Education.
