Robert K. Weary Award

The Foundation's board of trustees created the Weary Award in 2000 to recognize "lawyers or law firms for their exemplary service and commitment to the goals of the Kansas Bar Foundation." Weary was the initial recipient of the award—despite objections—for his decades of service to the community, the Foundation and the legal profession in Kansas.
