Katherine Logue Named Executive Director of the McLennan County Dispute Resolution Center

WACO, Texas - Txylo -- Waco native Katherine Logue has been named the Executive Director of the McLennan County Dispute Resolution Center (DRC). Logue, who graduated from Waco's Richfield High School, earned a Bachelor of Arts in the Plan II Honors program at the University of Texas at Austin in 1984 and a Juris Doctor degree from Baylor Law School in 1987.

DRC Board Chair Anna Clark Martinez stated, "The DRC is thrilled to announce the hiring of our new Executive Director, Katherine Logue. She brings to the DRC a diverse skill set that makes her uniquely qualified.  We are confident that Katherine will positively impact and expand quality mediation services in McLennan County and throughout Texas."

Chartered in 1996 as a non-profit organization, the DRC provides the community with education, training, and affordable mediation services. This mission resonates deeply with Logue. "In many legal conflicts, emotions run high. People want to tell their story and be heard, and that can be difficult when legal representation may be prohibitively expensive. The DRC can help by providing the parties with the opportunity to resolve their disputes in a meaningful and professional manner without the adversarial context of a courtroom setting," she said.
