Hunter was recognized for his consistent positive influence with his littles and his efforts to help promote the program within the Gila River Police Department and community. Both of Hunter's little brothers congratulated him on his recognition and stated they think he is nice, funny, and kind and they enjoy playing board games with him and going to ZooLights recently. Congratulations Jeff on being selected as this year's Site Based Big Brother of the Year!
