April 17, 2019

Damon Burton of the College of Education, Health and Human Sciences was selected to receive the Idaho Recreation and Park Association's Outstanding Individual Award for 2019. His selection was based on his 30 years as a member of the City of Moscow Parks and Recreation Commission. During his tenure on the Commission, Burton served as chair and helped usher in the Hamilton-Lowe Aquatics Center, Hamilton Indoor Recreation Center, Moscow School District Community Play Fields and Paradise Path and the associated pathways. He also influenced the construction of a number of new parks. Burton served on the Pathways Commission (formerly known as the Linear Park Task Force) for five years and has been a key player in the development of three Parks and Recreation master plans.
