A Fond Farewell
Hats off to two Illinois legal aid leaders who have recently stepped down.
Mike O’Connor served as executive director of Prairie State Legal Services since 2006. He has been with the organization since 1989. During his tenure, Prairie State built a strong local presence in both urban & rural communities across northern & central Illinois.
Denise Markham served as executive director of Life Span since 1993. Her leadership helped the organization provide increased services to victims of domestic and sexual violence and their children, assisting more 4000 clients per year.
We wish you both all the best in your next chapter and thank you for your dedicated service to Illinois’ most vulnerable residents.
