Board Member Polly Gustafson Presented the 2023 Burns Welding Scholarship to Lea Hasbargen.
Rodney Burns had a knack for fixing things and always had an idea on how to design and fabricate steel as well as teaching young people the trade. The Burns Welding Scholarship is awarded to a Lincoln High School graduate that was a member of the FFA club and will be continuing their education in a Technical program.
Diane Burns established this scholarship in memory of her husband. This is the second scholarship established by the Burns family. The Nick Burns Memorial Scholarship is awarded annually through Lincoln High School.
