The Scottsboro City Council has named Deborah Dunsmore the city’s new judge, making her the first female city judge in Scottsboro history.
Dunsmore has served as a city prosecutor for the past five years. When speaking about her new position, Dunsmore stated, “I’m excited about this new role. I just want to help the city any way I can.”
After graduating from Paint Rock Valley High School, Dunsmore received a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Montevallo in 1994. In 2001, she received a second degree in Human Resources Management from UAH.
While working in human resources, Dunsmore attended night classes, earning a Juris Doctorate from the Birmingham School of Law in 2006.
Dunsmore hopes her appointment to her new position shows young girls what they can accomplish.
