Brian Burke, ETS Advisor

Sutherlin High School
Fremont, Winston, Riddle  and Sutherlin Middle Schools

Bachelor's Degree in Liberal Studies with a minor in Business Adminstration and Sociology/Anthropology from Eastern Oregon University

 Joined Team in 2015

"I have been a part of the Douglas County community for my whole life. I attended Sutherlin High and Umpqua Community College before getting my degree from Eastern Oregon University. I wanted to with the high school students who are from this area because I had to go through the whole college process by myself. I want to help these students achieve their dreams and give them the support I never had. A lot of the students want to go to college to better their lives, but once they start going through the process they feel it is impossible. In the words of Walt Disney himself, “It’s kind of fun to do the impossible.”

“I believe in dreams and believe education is the key in achieving them. There are times when I cannot believe I am being paid to do what I love best! Being able to see our underrepresented students graduate then go on to the college of their choice is the best feeling ever!”
