The Masons of Burbank hosted a Public Schools Recognition Night recently at the Burbank Masonic Center.
The event was hosted by the two presiding officers of the local lodges Al Moen, master of Burbank #406, and Michael Strand, master of Magnolia Park #618. The master of ceremonies duties were shared by Erik Adams and Mike Campbell, senior deacons of their respective lodges.
Special recognition went to three of Burbank’s finest local teachers, who were recommended by their principals and selected for their devotion to their profession and dedication to their students. Those recognized were Kay Cee Mills, Burbank High School; Ted DeVirgilis, Muir Middle School; and Tyson Colt , Edison Elementary School.
Each teacher was presented with a framed Certificate of Appreciation, an engraved commemorative of the occasion and a small honorarium. Each of the musical presenters were given a small honorarium to go toward their respective school’s program.
The festivities were kicked off with a musical presentation by solo vocalist Talin Silva of Providencia Elementary School, followed by a performance by “Clef Hangers,” an all-boys choir from Jordan Middle School, conducted by Christine DeMore, with accompanist, Judie Stroh.
