Amy Catherine Cornell became the third Wabash County Superior Court judge in history Wednesday afternoon, Nov. 29, during a brief ceremony before a standing-room-only crowd in the Superior Courtroom.

“This is a big day for Wabash County and Wabash Circuit and Superior courts and the Wabash County Bar Association,” Circuit Court Judge Robert McCallen III said, greeting the crowd. “I am personally very excited to begin a new partnership with Judge Cornell, and to continue the work of the courts.

“Wabash is a unique community. We work together as a team and all across the board to act in the best interest of our community and society. I know Judge Cornell has been, and will continue to be a team player. She will continue her contribution to our community, now wearing a robe."
