"I am very honored and humbled to receive this award. I give credit for much of what I do to being in a great school with outstanding students," Burrows commented.
"Mrs. Burrows' passion, leadership, creativity and expertise in teaching physical education are a huge asset to our students, our school, our district and our community," said William Chamberlin, Ph.D, FVE Principal.
Lynn Burrow's accomplishment will be celebrated at the yearly association's conference in Westminster on Oct. 17.
