Director of the Target Program Kathi Bierwirth and Library Media Specialist Margi Putney were named the Rowland Chair recipients for 2019. Honorees receive “The Rowland Chair” to hold in their classroom or office for the year and receive a $7,000 stipend to be used for the collective benefit of their department or for professional development with the intent of improving the process and product.
The Rowland Fund first and foremost, supports the academics of the school and supports initiatives that make Burr and Burton Academy a superlative place for faculty and students to work, learn and achieve.
More than any other factor, BBA's faculty influences the quality of education at Burr and Burton. Two faculty chairs are awarded on an annual basis to acknowledge and honor teachers who are innovative, inspire and lead students and their peers, and who clearly have committed their hearts and souls to meeting the mission and vision of our school.
