Shirley Whitenack was one of the two recipients of the New Jersey State Bar Foundation's highest award, the 2019 Medal of Honor Award, given annually to those who best exemplify:

  • Significant contribution to the advancement and improvement of the justice system or the betterment of the legal profession in New Jersey; and
  • Professional excellence as demonstrated by accomplishments in the law; or service to the profession and the community during their careers
