OKLAHOMA CITY – State Rep. Avery Frix (R-Muskogee) invited the family of late Muskogee Councilwoman Avalon Reece to the State Capitol this week to attend a ceremonial signing of a bill that names a highway section in Muskogee after the local lawmaker.

House Bill 2311 names a section of U.S. 64 Business in Muskogee, beginning at West 23rd Street South extending north to the intersection of West Southside Boulevard as the "Councilwoman Avalon Reece Memorial Highway." The Oklahoma Department of Transportation will place permanent markers bearing the new name along the highway.

“Avalon Reece served a long and distinguished career in public service in Muskogee both as a councilwoman and an educator,” Frix said. “It is fitting and gratifying to be able to recognize her in this way.” FULL ARTICLE
