Edward L. Stanton, III was mentioned again later in the article:

Stanton, a former U.S. District Attorney for the Western District of Tennessee, took the opportunity after winning the category for Public Service to thank the staff at the U.S. Attorney’s office, who he said, don’t get the credit they deserve.

On Wednesday, March 8, Stanton announced he was joining Memphis’ second-largest private firm, Butler Snow LLP. Read more here.
