Alumnae in the News

Sydney Strickland Saffold ‘04 Featured with Family on WKYC

WKYC TV featured Laurel Alumna Sydney Strickland Saffold ‘04, a Cleveland Municipal Court Judge, alongside her mother, Judge Shirley Strickland Saffold, and her brother, Judge Jeffrey Saffold. 

Sydney says “I obviously grew up in the home with my mom as a judge, and then I got to go watch Jeff litigate, and he was a criminal defense attorney at the time. And the first time I saw him in the courtroom, he was in the middle of a trial, and he got up there and it was like he was walking on water."

The piece goes on to note that “This is a story of a mother, son, and daughter — each presiding in a city or a county court of law. But the Saffolds will tell you they are more than that: All view themselves as servants of the community and of the law.”
