Congratulations to the 2023 Burrowes Scholars! 

Each year, Lampeter-Strasburg educators choose from among the best and brightest students in each subject area to select Burrowes Scholars. Recipients of this long-standing District award are chosen from the fifth, eighth, and eleventh grades. This year's group includes 12 second-time winners and one student who received awards in two subject areas.

The Burrowes Scholars program is named for Dr. Thomas Henry Burrowes, a Strasburg native and esteemed education advocate who played a large part in passing the laws on which the nation's public school system is based. Dr. Burrowes also served as the president of Pennsylvania State University. The students selected as Burrowes Scholars each year exemplify traits befitting of Dr. Burrowes. They are self-motivated, diligent individuals who challenge themselves to excel and be leaders inside and outside the classroom.

We are proud to present these students as the 2023 Burrowes Scholars! Congratulations! You can read about each Burrowes Scholar here.
