2014 Bob Mars Scholarship Winner: Brian Burdon
Congrats to Brian Burdon, the 2014 recipient of the Bob Mars Scholarship! Brian is a teacher and the athletic director of Evergreen Middle School in Lake Washington School District.
The Bob Mars Scholarship is awarded annually to a middle level principal intern to help cover expenses for attendance at an AWSP-sponsored state conferences or any AWSP professional development workshop. The amount of the scholarship is determined by the Association of Washington Middle Level Principals (AWMLP) Board of Directors during their annual budget approval process.
In 2004, AWMLP established an annual scholarship in honor of Bob Mars. Bob Mars was a teacher who was tragically slain in the fall of 2004 at the Kiona-Benton City Middle School. Prior to his death, Bob had completed his coursework for certification, was preparing to enter his internship and was committed to becoming a principal. His principal certificate was awarded posthumously to his family at his memorial service in September of that year. Pictured: Brian Burdon
