Dennis Burnett scholarship will make sure he is not forgotten

Dennis Burnett

Dennis Burnett (1964-2014)

By Lynn R. Mitchell

Dennis Burnett passed away in October leaving behind not only shocked family and friends but also a shocked community that could not believe the vivacious, fun-loving 49-year-old was gone (see my Remembering Dennis Burnett 1964-2014).

But his legacy lives on. A scholarship fund in his name at his alma mater Blue Ridge Community College has raised over $16,000 on its way to a goal of $100,000.  Read more from reporter Megan Williams at the News Leader (see BRCC has raised $16,5K for Dennis Burnett scholarship).

Dennis Burnett. He is gone but through this scholarship he will not be forgotten.
