HOLBROOK, Ariz. - Navajo County employee Shirley Hunt, an employee of the Public Defender's Office, looked on as her son, Boyce "BJ" Little, Jr., was sworn in as the Justice of the Peace for Winslow. Hunt has worked for Navajo County for more than nine years. Many family members were in attendance as well. BJ's sister Chantilly Snelling traveled from Phoenix for the swearing in ceremony. Snelling has spent more than 20 years working in social services with a portion of that time working for Navajo County. It seems that public service is a family affair.

Little has worked in Navajo County Probation counseling and advising youth in corrective programs. He was a Drug Court team member working with drug addicts to turn their lives around. He has dedicated himself to the Winslow community and the Winslow High School football program for over 20 years.

According to Little, his most important role as the head coach is not to develop football players, but to develop strong, morally-driven young men.

Snelling said Little's greatest success is his marriage to wife Terri of 20 years and their two children, college student Timmy and junior high daughter Brianna.
