Exemplary Elected Official Award
The Honorable Sheree Davis Cunningham
During the December 9th program, the Forum Club will also recognize the Honorable Sheree Davis Cunningham with the organization's Exemplary Elected Official Award.
Judge Sheree Davis Cunningham is one of Palm Beach County’s most influential elected officials and a trailblazer for women and minorities in the judiciary. Judge Cunningham moved to West Palm Beach in 1985 after attending Howard University School of Law. She was offered a coveted clerkship with The Honorable Paul H. Roney, former Chief Judge of the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals. In 1993, Judge Cunningham was appointed to the 15th Judicial Circuit Court by Governor Lawton Chiles. She was the first black woman to serve as a judge in Palm Beach County and served in this capacity for 26 years until her retirement in 2019.
Judge Cunningham’s passion was making a difference in the domestic violence arena, specifically as it relates to children and ensuring they are not overlooked as victims. Judge Cunningham was also committed to assisting younger lawyers with judicial aspirations, serving annually on a panel entitled “The Road to the Bench.” She was also a volunteer judge for the Civil Drug Court.
Judge Cunningham’s commitment to public service beyond the bench is extensive. She has been the recipient of the Thurgood Marshall Awards from the F. Malcolm Cunningham, Sr. Bar Association. She has been recognized as one of Florida’s 25 Most Influential and Prominent Black Women, and she has received the Heritage Leadership Award for Outstanding Community Service. She was also the recipient of the Extraordinary Commitment to Fairness in the Criminal Justice System in 2010.
