Dear Fellows, Friends, and Supporters of the San Antonio Bar Foundation:

It is with great pride and a sense of accomplishment that your 2004-2005
Board of Trustees provides this Annual Report of the San Antonio Bar
Foundation. The Report focuses on events, activities, and charitable
contributions during fiscal year 2004-2005; recipients of the 2005
Peacemaker Awards; and our generous contributors and Fellows.

Broadly stated, the Foundation’s mission is to promote justice through
educational and charitable activities. The Foundation has carried out
this mission faithfully through the hard work and dedication of countless
individuals. It is you – the Fellows and the many volunteers who give
selflessly of your time, energy, and other resources – who have insured the growth and success of the
Foundation as a vehicle for giving back to and improving our community. Through your commitment
and generosity, legal barriers have been overcome and doors have been opened to the underserved.
Please accept my heartfelt thanks for all you do for the Foundation and our community.

The Foundation’s membership is strong and vibrant, with almost 500 distinguished Fellows, including
136 Life Fellows and 74 Sustaining Life Fellows. In its 21st year, the Foundation donated over $54,000
in charitable gifts to worthy programs and organizations, including the Community Justice Program,
the San Antonio Bar Association’s award-winning pro bono program. In addition to a significant giving
program, the Foundation also transferred $75,000 to the endowment fund for future giving. Through
annual contributions to the endowment fund since 2000, and through prudent investment strategies
managed by Frost Bank, the endowment fund is now over $500,000. This significant benchmark takes
your Foundation more than half way toward its goal of building the endowment for future giving to a
minimum of one million dollars by 2011, while maintaining a high level of support for the community at
the same time. In the past 5 years, the Foundation has contributed over $375,000 to the endowment fund
for future giving and over $450,000 for charity.

In addition to the above, highlights of the year include:
         • restructuring of the Foundation’s fundraising events to hold the Annual Fun Run/Walk in the
             Fall of the year when the weather is picture perfect for a run;
         • establishment with the San Antonio Bar Association and other legal organizations of a Pro
             Bono Task Force to review and make recommendations regarding the provision of pro bono
             services in our community;
         • a record 2005 Peacemaker Awards Gala during which Susan Ives, Diane Tilly
             (posthumously), Nancy Taylor Shivers, SBC Communications Inc., and Churchill High
             School were honored;
         • People’s Law School at which 130 attendees were served; and
         • monthly pro bono Wills Clinic serving 245 people with the help of almost 200 volunteer

It was my great privilege to serve as 2004-2005 Chair of the San Antonio Bar Foundation in its 21st year.
You can be proud of the Foundation’s accomplishments to date, and the future is even more exciting.

                                                 Laurie A. Weiss
                                                 2004-2005 Chair of the Board of Trustees

Installation Dinner
The joint installation of officers, directors, and trustees of the San Antonio Bar Foundation and the San
Antonio Bar Association occurs in September of each year. The Installation Dinner was held at the Sky
Room of the University of the Incarnate Word on September 18, 2004. The funds raised by the San Antonio
Bar Foundation and San Antonio Bar Association benefited the Community Justice Program (CJP), which
provides legal services to the disadvantaged and low-income people in Bexar County and surrounding
areas. Net proceeds of approximately $24,000 benefited the Community Justice Program.

Law Day
On May 6, 2005, the San Antonio Bar Foundation and the San Antonio Bar Association celebrated the annual
Law Day luncheon at the San Antonio Marriott Rivercenter. A National Law Day, officially designated by a
joint resolution of Congress in 1961, is defined as “a special day focusing on our heritage of liberty under the
law.” The theme of this year’s Law Day was “The American Jury: We the People in Action.” The keynote
speaker was Mark S. Curriden, a noted author, legal journalist and Senior Communications Counsel for
Vinson & Elkins, L.L.P. in Dallas. MrCurriden gave a presentation based on his book, Contempt of Court:
A Turn of the Century Lynching that Launched 100 Years of Federalism.

Joe Frazier Brown, Sr. Awards were presented to Charles L. Smith, a Foundation Fellow, and the late Judge
Bill White. The son of Judge White, John White, accepted the award for his father. The Liberty Bell Award
was awarded to the Foundation’s own Carolyn G. Thurmond. We are very proud that the San Antonio
Young Lawyers recognized Carolyn Thurmond for her service to the legal community and her role as a
good will ambassador for all of us in the larger community. The Outstanding Young Lawyers Award was
awarded to Ramon A. Molina. The Bexar County Women’s Bar Association presented the St. Mary’s Single
Parent Scholarship to Sister Grace Walle for her program at St. Mary’s.

                                                                       Charles L. Smith accepts his Joe

Peacemaker Awards Gala
The San Antonio Bar Foundation created the Peacemaker Award in 1995 to celebrate and honor individuals
who are engaged in anti-violence initiatives and peacemaking efforts in our community. Since the first
awards were conveyed in 1995, the Peacemaker Awards have honored “unsung heroes” in our community
who have promoted non-violent resolutions to community conflicts. The San Antonio Bar Foundation is
committed to community-based efforts to minimize conflict and provide forums and methods to resolve
disputes in a peaceful manner. Among other initiatives, the Foundation supports conflict resolution programs
in area schools through the Amigos in Mediation program operated by the Bexar County Dispute Resolution

Proceeds from the Peacemaker Awards Gala are used to support the Amigos in Mediation Peer Mediation
Program (AIM) and other charitable and educational activities of the Foundation.

The Honor Roll of past Peacemaker recipients illustrates one of the purposes of the Peacemakers Gala:

                             2005 PEACEMAKER AWARDS
The Foundation held its annual Peacemaker Awards Gala on April 1, 2005, at the San Antonio Museum of
Art. The Foundation honored Susan Ives with the 2005 Peacemaker Award; SBC Communications with
the Corporate Community Award; Winston Churchill High School with the School Peer Mediation Award;
and Nancy Shivers with the Individual Community Service Award. A special Peacemaker Award for 2005
was given posthumously to Diane Tilly.

I.      Individual Peacemaker Award Recipient – Susan Ives
                          Susan Ives spends her life stressing the importance of seeking non-violent
                          solutions in our community. She uses her roles as a weekly columnist for the San
                          Antonio Express-News and as an Advocate for the peaceCENTER to achieve
                          these goals. Her focus on the Palestinian conflict serves to remind all of us that
                          there are two sides to every argument. She encourages people to listen to those
                          with whom we usually disagree, to shed our prejudices and walk in another’s
                          shoes, and to view problems from a different prospective, however alien and
                          foreign they may seem. Her approach asks each of us to look for peaceful
                          resolutions for conflicts and, most of all, requires us to view each other in a
                          different light.

Susan can be found telling a story to a church group in San Antonio or talking to local college students,
but she also is familiar with many other parts of the world. She served in Desert Storm as a U.S. Army
officer, receiving the prestigious Keith L. Ware Award for best Army field newspaper; served on the first
U.S. humanitarian airlift into former Soviet Republics; and wrote the public relations plan for the first
U.S. mission into Bosnia. Her accomplishments are so many and so equally impressive that there is not
sufficient space to list them. There is no limit to her dedication toward communicating the ideas of peace
and reconciliation to everyone. Her willingness to represent people whose voices often are unheard speaks
to her courage as she works to ensure every group receives equal treatment. She very effectively uses her
skills as a writer and speaker to stand up for the diversity and peace that she champions.

One of her nominating letters read, “She seeks to bring people together, not to tear them apart.” She risked
danger to herself to bring both sides of a story to the community and to provide comfort and hope to many.
Susan is a Peacemaker in the true sense of the word and stands as witness to the fact that one person can
make a difference.
II.     Individual Posthumous Peacemaker Award Recipient – Diane Tilly

                            Although Diane Tilly was not present to receive her award, she was well
                            represented by family members who knew the profound impact she had on
                            their lives and those of many others. As the head of Alamo Heights ISD
                            Alternative High School at Robbins Campus, Diane was a driving force in
                            providing hope and education for students with many needs. Her love and
                            compassion for at-risk students enabled many of those students to face the
                            future with hope and the tools to accomplish their dreams. She required her
                            students to be accountable for their actions, but tempered those demands with
                            a caring attitude and the knowledge that she was there to help. Her ability to
                            give her students self-confidence and skills to handle life was remarkable.

Diane’s curriculum was a rigorous, comprehensive program where all her students at the at-risk high
school pass the TAKS and go on to be successful in the next chapter of their lives. Her direction,
motherly advice and support often filled a great void in the lives of those students who had not
experienced these things at home. One story that always will be remembered by those who love her is
that of graduation at Robbins Academy, which is held whenever a student completes all the requirements.
In blue graduation robes, these students march down the halls to the cheers and congratulations of their
teachers, administrators, peers, parents and anyone who is present. Diane was famous for telling each
student, with tears streaming down her face, that she was proud of them and asking them what their plans
for the future were. She never lost sight of the fact that each student needs a goal, a plan to achieve, and
she spent her life making sure that many of those students went on to great success.

Diane was awarded the ExCel Award for Excellence in Teaching in 1999 by the San Antonio Federal
Credit Union and KENS TV. She was nominated for the Texas Exes Award for Outstanding High School
Teachers. Her principal’s letter of recommendation, written before her untimely death, begins with this
sentence, “Diane Tilly is saving lives and souls of our at-risk students and she is doing it with integrity,
enthusiasm and purpose.” Her zest for life, her love of students, and her compassion for those who most
need help live on in all of those whose lives she touched.

III.    Corporate Community Service Award Recipient – SBC Communications, Inc.

Since SBC Communications Inc. moved its headquarters to San Antonio, the
company has established itself as one of the city’s leading corporate citizens.
Under CEO Edward E. Whitacre Jr., SBC has contributed more than $70
million to hundreds of local non-profit organizations, meeting the spectrum
of human needs. The company’s commitment to San Antonio is also
underscored by the work of the Mission City chapter of the SBC Pioneers,
who donated nearly one million hours of volunteer service to deserving
local causes last year alone. Whitacre also has chosen to lead by example,
regularly contributing his own time and energy to important area campaigns
including service as Chairman of the United Way General Campaign for
San Antonio and Bexar County, and as Chairman of the San Fernando City
Centre Capital Campaign to restore and maintain the historic San Fernando
Cathedral. SBC consistently has been honored by national publications for
its commitment to diversity and social responsibility. Under Whitacre’s
leadership, SBC has helped make San Antonio a better place to live, and has         Ed Whitacre, CEO SBC
improved the well-being of countless lives in this community.                       Communications, Inc.
IV.    Individual Community Service Award Recipient – Nancy Taylor Shivers

                            When someone speaks about immigration law in San Antonio, the name of
                            Nancy Shivers immediately is mentioned. As a specialist in immigration
                            law, she long has been an outstanding advocate for fair treatment of
                            immigrants in our community and country. She spends unending hours of
                            her time providing free legal services to undocumented, indigent families, to
                            battered immigrant women, and to refugees seeking asylum. Her expertise
                            makes her an invaluable asset to every group she reaches. She is recognized
                            as one of the most active immigration attorneys in our community and gives
                            an extraordinary amount of her time to needy immigrants and refugees. Her
                            service to the legal community is far reaching as she assists other attorneys
                            through the complex system that is immigration law.

The Bexar County Women’s Bar Association recognized Nancy for her work by awarding her the Belva
Lockwood Award in 1994. She served as a board member for the Refugee Aid Project for four years
and continues to be a valuable asset to that project. Nancy served the Immigration Clinic at St. Mary’s
University School of Law and conducted or participated in almost every important immigration and
asylum conference in the state.

V.     School Peer Mediation Award Recipient – Winston Churchill High School

Conflicts at Winston Churchill High School often are resolved in such
a satisfactory manner that even the participants are surprised. None of
this is by accident. The strong peer mediation program at Churchill under
the leadership of Dawn Wales plays an important role in the lives of
students who participate. The 40 PALS (Peer Assistance Leadership) and
32 Peace Team members provide a strong program for conflict resolution
and also promote a school atmosphere that is accepting of all students.
Many faculty members have commented on the effectiveness of the program for the student body as a
whole. The peer mediation team has handled a large variety of conflicts that are referred by students,
teachers and administrators. Through mediation demonstrations for the faculty, PA announcements, and
demonstrations for freshmen orientation, the team provides information about the mediation services
provided. In the fall of 2004, the Peace Team was recognized as a Model Peacekeeper’s class by
paxUnited. Churchill has been chosen as the first place winner in the Texas Safe and Drug-Free Schools
competition. It also was named the first school in San Antonio as a “No Place for Hate” school by the
Anti-Defamation League.

Churchill High School mediation students serve not only their school, but they also assist students and
teachers in other schools with their programs. For the past two years, Churchill students trained the Oak
Meadow Elementary Peace Kids in an effort to handle mediation among the elementary school students.
Churchill students’ impact on another school speaks volumes about the strength of the Churchill program.

One parent, whose child is a mediator, stated, “…the precise and succinct way that the Peace curriculum
is written and managed has given her many tools necessary to organize her hectic life…and she will
graduate at the top of her class; a feat we believe was aided by having been a member of the Peace
Team.” The Team also started the “Britain Buddies” program, in which students are matched with
new students to Churchill. This helps those new students who might feel lost as they start classes in
this high school of 3,000 student. The team mediators also began the “Lunch Buddy” program, where
they sought out students who ate
alone or hid in bathrooms and
school locations because they had
no friends with whom they could
eat lunch. Knowing that “loners”
have been identified as students
more likely to commit violent acts,
the mediators made a real effort to
identify and befriend these students.
Peer mediators at Churchill High
School are true peacemakers and
their skills and caring learned from
mediation will serve them and others
throughout their lives.

Amigos in Mediation
The San Antonio Bar Foundation allocates a portion of the funds raised from the Peacemaker
Awards Gala to help underwrite some of the costs of maintaining the AIM Program in Bexar County.
Honoring peacemakers in the community enables the Foundation to help fund the Amigos in Mediation
program, which serves a large number of schools in Bexar County.

AIM is the groundbreaking Peer Mediation Program of the Bexar County Dispute Resolution Center, which
is transforming our schools by creating a culture of peaceful dispute resolution. The mission of the AIM
Program is to provide a coordinated peer mediation program that enables students to resolve their own
conflicts without the intervention of school staff through the use of students trained as peer mediators.
AIM is available at no cost to all the elementary, middle and high schools within all 15 school districts in
Bexar County. The selection of schools places an emphasis on those with high populations of at-risk youth
and those with adverse statistics in the areas of increased violence, high truancy rates and disciplinary
incidents. Participating schools are encouraged to select students to be trained as mediators from a broad,
cross-section of the student population in order to assure representation across gender, ethnic and economic
sectors of the population spectrum.

Since 1999, nearly 100 public schools have instituted peer mediation programs. 1,200 school personnel
have been trained as peer mediation trainers and 7,730 students have been trained as peer mediators. The
agreement rate for mediations conducted is 95%. Over 11,580 students have chosen to use the peer mediation
process to resolve their conflicts.

The following is an excerpt from a series of interviews with high school students who participate in Peer

“Question to Steven:    ‘Steven, do you find that other people who are not involved in the Peer Mediation
                        Program want to get involved because they see that you can find solutions?’

Answer:                 ‘Yes, the thing that it does…it helps everybody because it gives them another
                        opportunity. It gives them an alternative to physical violence. And it keeps
                        them in school. At a lot of schools, if you are in a physical conflict with another
                        student, they suspend you…You lose out twice: you lose out because you’re
                        suspended, and that goes on your record; and you lose out because you are not
                        in school, so you’re missing that opportunity to learn. This way, if you solve it in
                        class, you take maybe 30 minutes out of a class. You solve the problem, and most
                        of the time, when the people who had a conflict leave the room, they leave as

“Question to All:       ‘If each of you had one word to describe the Peer Mediation Program, what
                        would it be?’

Bianca:                 ‘A lifesaver.’
Steven:                 ‘Outstanding.’
April:                  ‘Incredible.’
Shanda:                 ‘Wonderful.’”

People’s Law School
The People’s Law School, which was created in 1994, provides legal and consumer information/
education to the general public at no cost. This year the event was held on Saturday, February 5, 2005, at
the St. Mary’s University School of Law with approximately 150 people in attendance. The Foundation
provides a continental breakfast. Attendees are free to select the various sections they prefer to attend.
The subjects offered at this People’s Law School were Elder Law issues: Preparation of Wills, Probate of
Wills, Grandparents Rights, and Social Security; Miscellaneous Legal issues: Scams, Frauds and Ripoffs;
Pre-Divorce Mediation, Bankruptcy, and Employment Law; and four Immigration Issues sections. The
Immigration Sections were given in Spanish. In most of the classes, helpful information booklets and sheets
were distributed. Copies of the Elder Law Handbooks, both in English and Spanish, are available to all
attendees. Captioning for the hearing impaired is provided for the Elder Law lectures. The feedback that
the Foundation received regarding People’s Law School indicates that this public service to the community
is well-received and appreciated.

Wills Clinic
The Wills Clinic is held in the evening on the second Wednesday of each month at the St. Mary’s Center
for Legal and Social Justice. Its primary mission is to provide pro bono legal representation for low-
income residents of San Antonio and Bexar County. At the clinic, each client receives a Will, Powers of
Attorney for Medical Care and Business Matters, Directive to Physicians and Declaration of Guardian,
as well as information on organ donation. The notaries and translators are provided by the San Antonio
Legal Secretaries Association. The Wills Clinic is in its tenth year and has grown from a bi-annual clinic,
implemented by the Bexar County Women’s Bar Foundation, to a monthly turn-key project begun in 2004,
operated in conjunction with the San Antonio Bar Foundation. Since the monthly project began, the Wills
Clinic has served approximately 20 clients or more per month. Complimentary refreshments are served
and the clients are served in a friendly, welcoming environment. The Foundation continues to receive
compliments and thank-you expressions from those who attend.

It is a collaborative effort of the San Antonio legal community to increase access to justice by bringing
the courthouse to the community. An evening assistance clinic is held once a month at two locations: the
St. Mary’s Center for Legal and Social Justice and the Carver Academy. A third location has just opened
at Wesley Community Center. Each clinic provides complete legal services, including attorneys, district
clerks, notaries, interpreters and judges in uncontested family law matters, bankruptcy, landlord/tenant
disputes and probate matters.

St. Mary’s University School of Law
(Campus Ministry Fund)
The Foundation provided funds for the “San Antonio Bar Foundation Pro Bono Service Award for Law
Students,” which provides annual recognition and honorariums for outstanding leadership in three programs.
These programs are:
        1) Legal Clinic at St. Jude’s Catholic Church, which provides legal aid facilities for the
        2) People’s Law School, a joint endeavor with the San Antonio Bar Foundation, which provides
            free legal seminars to the San Antonio community; and
        3) Street Law Program, a project in conjunction with the San Antonio Black Lawyers Association,
            teaming an attorney and a law student to teach a survey course at Sam Houston High School,
            highlighting the aspects of the law applicable to a student’s everyday life.

Newspapers in the Classroom Project
The Foundation funded two classrooms in the San Antonio Public Schools through the San Antonio Express-
News program, Newspapers in the Classroom. Students receive newspapers throughout the school year,
and teachers use them as training tools.

Family Law Handbooks
The Foundation helped fund the printing costs of 5,000 Family Law Handbooks at the request of the Family
Law Section. These handbooks are helpful to the general public and low-income families who have little
information about their legal rights. The handbook is available on the web sites of the San Antonio Bar
Association and Foundation.

                                      WILLS CLINIC

                 A Joint Project of the San Antonio Bar Foundation
                  and the Bexar County Women’s Bar Foundation

The San Antonio Bar Foundation and the Bexar County Women’s Bar Foundation share the
operating costs for the Wills Clinic, including advertising, food, intake and supplies. The
sponsors of the Wills Clinic also include Texas RioGrande Legal Aid, Inc., St. Mary’s Clinical
Programs, San Antonio Legal Secretaries Association (SALSA) and Esquire Deposition Services.

At the clinic, each client receives a will, powers of attorney for business matters and medical
care, directive to physicians (living will), declaration of guardian in the event of later need, and/
or a tissue and organ donor card. Each month there are approximately twenty clients served, for a
total annual service of 240 to 260 low-income residents.

The Wills Clinic is held on the second Wednesday of each month in the evening at St. Mary’s
Center for Legal and Social Justice. All client appointments begin at 5:30 P.M. and dinner is
provided. An attorney mentor is present at each Clinic to answer any questions or assist.

To prepare for the Wills Clinic, attorneys have the opportunity to receive an hour of free CLE
by watching several videos, one on Wills and one on Advance Planning. This CLE is held on
the first Wednesday of each month, beginning at noon, on the fifth floor of the Bexar County
Courthouse. This CLE helps attorneys deliver advice and prepare the documents described above
for the Wills Clinic.

Anyone interested in volunteering for any clinic, please contact Abigail G. Kampmann at 210-
