Conrad Nominated for Federal Judgeship

by -

Clemson, SC-Former Clemson basketball standout Bob Conrad has been
nominated to a federal judgeship in North Carolina by President
George Bush. The announcement was made on Monday.

Conrad, a native of Illinois who is now a resident of
Charlotte, has been the U.S. Attorney for the Western District of
North Carolina since 2001. He has been a federal prosecutor since
1989. He gained national attention in 2000 when he was named the
Chief of the United States Department of Justice Campaign Task Force
by then Attorney General Janet Reno.

"I'm honored to be nominated by President Bush," said Conrad.
"If confirmed I would strive to pursue justice with integrity."

Conrad, 44, played for the Tigers from 1976-80. He was a
starter in 1978-79 and 1979-80. The 1979-80 team reached the Final
Eight of the NCAA Tournament, the only Clemson men's team in history
to reach the regional finals. He is still fifth in school history
in assists with 402 and seventh in steals with 141. He took 32
charges in 1978-79, still a Clemson single season record. He played
in 79 Clemson victories in his career, second on the all-time list
behind Elden Campbell.

In the classroom, Conrad won an NCAA Postgraduate scholarship
and was the winner of the ACC's Jim Weaver Award, an honor presented
to the top all-around student-athlete in the ACC, regardless of
sport. He also won the Norris Medal at Clemson in 1980, an honor
presented to the University's most outstanding student. After
graduation from Clemson he went on to earn his law degree from the
University of Virginia.
