The late Judge David Klim '74 is among seven Nottingham High School alumni
who will be honored at the second annual "Wall of Fame" induction ceremony
on October 13, 2007, at Drumlins Country Club in Syracuse.
Klim, who earned his St. Lawrence degree in
government and his law degree from
Syracuse University, was adjunct law professor at Onondaga Community College
and special prosecutor with the Onondaga County District Attorney's Office. A 1970
graduate of Nottingham, Klim was twice elected to 10-year terms as Onondaga
County Family Court Judge. He was a member of the Onondaga County Bar Association,
the New York State Bar Association, the National Disabled Bar Association, the
Central New York Women's Bar Association and the American Bar association.
Klim was also a board member of the Huntington Family Centers, the Association
for Retarded Citizens, the Volunteer Center and Legal Services of CNY, as well as
other organizations. Known for his calming influence on young children while
they were in his court as Family Court Judge, he was also known for his wit
and humor, and was a proud winner of the "Men Who Cook" award (to benefit
the Mental Health Association of Onondaga County). At St. Lawrence, Klim
participated in the student government organization, Thelomathesian
Society, and was a member of
Alpha Tau Omega fraternity. He died in 2006.
