Shepard Award. Hughes said he knew of the award but never gave a thought to one day being honored with it."I was actually kind of embarrassed because so many other people helped," Hughes said.Now that he the award in hand, Hughes said nothing will change. But he does have one wish."I hope that the recognition will inspire other attorney's to become involved in pro bono work and do their share," Hughes said.Hughes does work for companies such as Habitat for Humanity and the Drop-In Center.
