Barbara M. Burdon Memorial Educational Endowment Fund #225
To provide an annual scholarship award to a Bullock Creek High School senior who is pursuing a degree in secondary education.
From the fundholder:
Barbara was a dedicated secondary school teacher who taught in several districts throughout the country. In addition to the Midland and Bullock Creek school districts in Michigan she taught in New Orleans La., Elk Grove Ill.,Spring Tx., and Lake Zurich Ill. She achieved the highest teacher rating in each of these districts. Barbara was a graduate of CMU at a time when CMU was known as primarily a teachers college. She died of ovarian cancer much too young in 1977. It was always her intent to encourage students to pursue a degree in education by making a scholarship available to a deserving high school graduate.
