Kevin Burket Alumni Service Award


The Kevin Burket Alumni Service Award was renamed in honor of the late, dear friend of TFAS, Kevin Burket ’85. Kevin passed away on Sept. 1, 2007, after a brief battle with cancer. Kevin brought a ready smile, caring personality and passion for the TFAS mission whenever he attended any event, meeting or other TFAS activity.
