Announcement: Doris Taylor Burrows

It is with deep sadness that we share the passing of Doris Taylor Burrows, Dr. William D. Purser’s (class of August 1953) longtime companion. Doris passed away on February 10th at the age of 86. She generously supported Logan students with the Single Mom Scholarship, was by Dr. Purser’s side at many events on the Logan campus and was a friend of the University.

Our thoughts are with the Purser and Burrows families.
