Susan B. Carbon, supervisory judge with the Grafton County Family Division, has been chosen by Plymouth State College to receive a Granite State Award.
The award recognizes New Hampshire business people, government officials, teachers and other professionals whose achievements have contributed greatly to the quality of life of New Hampshire citizens. She received the award at the annual graduate commencement ceremony at the College on Saturday, May 10.
“I am deeply honored to receive the Granite State Award. To me, this reflects Plymouth State’s recognition of the work of the judicial system in helping to make the courts more responsive to the needs of the public. It also underscores the value and importance of working cooperatively with other branches of government, and with public and private organizations to improve our work. This is a most humbling award, and one which I will continue to strive to deserve.”
Carbon, a resident of Pittsfield, is also a judge of the Concord District Court. She is a member of the NH Governor’s Commission on Domestic and Sexual Violence and chairs its Fatality Review Committee.
