GEORGETOWN, Texas (KXAN) — In honor of National Child Abuse Prevention Month, Williamson County hosted a special ceremony in Colton Turner’s memory.
The Children’s Advocacy Center in Georgetown hosted an open house debuting three newly-renovated playrooms inside. Those rooms are now reserved in a hallway called Colton’s Way. The center hopes this area provides a sanctuary for other children.
Meanwhile, the toddler’s family says they hope “Colton’s Way” will help in the fight against child abuse.
“We can use this opportunity to ask our community to pay attention,” said Lexi Harris, Colton’s cousin. “When you see abuse, report it. Be a voice for kids like Colton that can’t speak for themselves.
A number of state legislators attended the event, including State Representative Marsha Farney who sponsored “Colton’s Law.”
