Avondale captures All-America City honor

The second time was the charm as Avondale captured an All-America City Award during a repeat appearance in the finals of the national competition.

Avondale was among 15 U.S. communities designated for the award June 16 at the National Civic League Convention in Denver.

Twenty-nine cities were up for the honor in a competition that involved the Campaign for Grade-Level Reading to recognize communities that have made measurable progress for low-income children toward early reading success.

In 2016, Avondale was a finalist for the award, but was not among the 10 cities that got the honor.

This year, Avondale’s application for the award was submitted by the Valley of the Sun United Way based on the Read On — Avondale program.
