Barbara and Timothy Burdon Memorial Educational Endowment Fund #00225
To provide annual scholarship award(s) to a Bullock Creek High School graduating senior who is pursuing a degree or certification in education, science and/or business.
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.
