Florida A&M University College of Law 2009 graduate Gabrielle Sanders recently made history by being officially sworn in as Osceola County’s first Black judge. Sanders is also the first FAMU College of Law graduate to be elected as a judge serving in Osceola County.

“I am honored to represent Osceola County in the role of judge for the Ninth Judicial Circuit,” said Sanders.

The FAMU College of Law recognized Sanders with the Distinguished Alumni Award in November 2018.

She is one of three FAMU Law alumni currently serving as judges in Central Florida. Judge Amy Carter is in Orange County and Judge Kelly McCormack Ingram is in Brevard County.

Sanders was sworn in at an Investiture Ceremony on Feb. 22 at the Osceola County Courthouse. She is presiding over civil cases.
