Equestrian Team Presidential Ambassadors Student Government Association University Program Council Burnette’s decision to enroll at Lander was prompted by memories of visiting a relative who was a student at the university. “I remember experiencing university life, including eating in the student dining hall and going to the library,” she said. As for the other reasons she chose Lander, Burnette added, “I’m from a small town and Lander is a small school. And it is only about 45 miles from my home in Elberton.” At Lander, she was a Presidential Ambassador, a member of Pi Sigma Alpha, the national political science honor society, and chair of the student Republican Club. She also enrolled in Lander’s Honors International Program and spent time tutoring her Spanish classmates. Burnette received an $11,000 Rotary scholarship to underwrite expenses associated with her semester abroad at Sociedad Hispano Mundial, in Granada. 27
