Davis Wins Scholarship Award

BERLIN – Hannah Davis, a student at Berlin Intermediate School, was selected to receive the 2nd Annual Franklin Burroughs Golf Scholarship to attend the Eagles Landing Golf Camp.

The scholarship is named after Burroughs, who owned One-Time Plumbing, Inc. for more than 25 years.

“My husband loved God, children, golf and all athletics,” said Freda Burroughs, the scholarship namesake’s wife. “His children and all the neighborhood children who came to his home he called ‘The Burley Bunch” because of all the fun  activities he provided and the fact that he lived on Burley Street at that time. All of the children are now grown. Two of the Burley Bunch were his own children, Barry and Amber. Other members Cecil Tull, John and Stephen Barrett and many more.”

The purpose of the scholarship is to select one student each year to receive the award. The scholarship is for deserving children who show interest and have ability in golf. As a result of receiving the award, Davis will attend the Ocean City Recreation and Parks Department’s Eagles Landing Golf Camp from June 29-July 2 or July 13-16.

Anyone interested in donating to the Franklin Burroughs Golf Scholarship Fund should contact Calvin B. Taylor Bank. The fund was started last year with a $1,000 donation. Two scholarships have been given so far.
