The Avalon Center appreciates and values our community members who do so much for us. We want to show how important they are to us by recognizing some of these outstanding individuals. The Avalon Center is pleased to announce that Judge Todd Burnett was recognized as our "Unsung Hero" for the month of December 2017.

Even so, he states " his job is rewarding and most of the time he can go home knowing that he found the right answer, made the best decision, and was able to help others".
