    The goal of the Alumni Association’s Executive Board is to ensure that its alma mater endures.

    • Fostering communication among all Burr and Burton alumni and between individual alumni and their alma mater.
    • Perpetuating the traditions that have always distinguished Burr and Burton in the past and by encouraging financial support and overall commitment, both of which are essential to the school’s future.
