  Ms. BASS of California. Mr. Speaker, today I honor a remarkable 
constituent of California, Diane Nunn, for receiving the First Annual 
Mark Hardin Award for Child Welfare Legal Scholarship and Systems 
Change. Ms. Nunn is characterized by her leadership, humility, and her 
deep driving compassion for the lives of families and children in 
California.
  Ms. Nunn was recognized for this award because of her lifetime 
commitment to improving the lives of families and children in 
California as a teacher and through her work at the Administrative 
Office of the Courts.
  Ms. Nunn joined the Administrative Office of the Courts in 1986 as an 
attorney in private practice with an emphasis on family and criminal 
law, including domestic violence prevention and intervention. Since 
2000, Ms. Nunn has been the Division Director of the Center for 
Families, Children & the Courts, and the Administrative Office of the 
Courts. During her time in this office, Ms. Nunn also served as a 
juvenile court referee for the Superior Court of Los Angeles and has 
published influential written material for her field.
  Mr. Speaker, I am proud to have such a pioneering and inspirational 
community leader like Diane Nunn in my home state of California and I 
congratulate her on the receipt of this award.
