After 11 years, Burke made the move to juvenile court, spending 16 years of putting children on the right path. Judge Burke serves on the board of directors or Observance Day Association, Inc., and is involved with Council for Juvenile Court Judges, Chatham County Truancy Protocol Committee, Savannah Chapter NAACP, and more.
