For The Record

The Metro Richmond Women’s Bar Association honored Richmond Law’s Carole Yeatts for her “exceptional commitment to the personal, professional, and intellectual development of others.” Yeatts, director of career development for career advising and employer outreach, is one of two recipients of the 2021 Phoebe P. Hall Mentorship Award.

“Carole has unquestionably gone above and beyond anything that would have ever been required of her as ‘just’ my career adviser,” said Mary Margaret Hawkins, L’21, who submitted the nomination. “Because of her mentorship, I know I will pass on the value of having a good mentor and make the effort to mentor other young attorneys and law students one day.”

This recognition “was absolutely the highlight of my career,” Yeatts said. “It gives me joy to connect people; it gives me joy to put people together who either have common interests or common needs and then sit back and watch their relationship grow and develop.”
