Photo Goes in Case After 65 Years

It was a great trip to Plymouth to meet Dave and Janet Burke!  Special thanks to Mr. Stan Seiss and his efforts to ensure all Warsaw state champions are recognized with their photo placed in the trophy case!  After getting in touch with Dave Burke - the 1951 state champion in the high jump - Blossers used an old photo and negative to create an 11x14 to place in the case, and one was made to share with Mr Burke!  The Warsaw graduate was one of Warsaw's first state champions and he continued his track & Field career at Purdue University.  Burke went on to teach and coach in Warsaw for several years, and he served 33 years teaching mathematics and coaching track at Culver Military Academy.  Burke is also an inductee to the Kosciusko County Basketball Hall of Fame.   (Pictured: Scott Erba, Dave Burke, Stan Seiss)
