Rotary keeps students focused

The Burbank Noon Rotary Club made a $2,000 donation to the Burroughs photography department and the funds are covering the costs of printing, mounting, matting and framing photographs, allowing students to have their work displayed like a professional, said Burroughs photography teacher Bonnie Burrow. 

"Our Rotarians are to be commended for their generosity," Burrow said.

The former Leader photographer believes the best way to learn the craft is to send students into real-life situations. So, they shoot community events for the Burbank Chamber of Commerce, the city’s Sister City project and organizations.
