Courts to feature bilingual speaker

I thought this was pretty cool. There are probably some other county (and possibly city offices) that should make similar hires. (I'm not sure of the salary. Hey, I'm on vacation, it's not like I'm gonna be busting it this week. Heh.)

From Knox County Criminal Court Clerk Mike Hammond:

“Since I have been in office, I have seen a need for someone who is bilingual to assist our Spanish speaking community,” Hammond said.  Ms. (Laura) Avalos-Evon has worked in the Juvenile and Circuit/ Sessions Court Clerk’s office in Jefferson County for eight years. 

"She is bilingual in English and Spanish and will be available to assist persons in each of the three Clerk offices which includes 4th Circuit, Criminal Sessions, and Criminal Court.  Her first day will be July 13th. 

"She is a member of the Jefferson Memorial Hospital Board of Directors and the 2004 Jefferson County Leadership Class.  Prior to joining the Clerk’s office in Jefferson County she worked with Safespace in Newport as an advocate to the Hispanic Community about Domestic Violence."
