Zachary Burlison is one of our 2020 Scholarship recipients. He is the son of Keith and Tammie Burlison of Bethany. Zach was born with severe complications and started wearing hearing aids at the age of 10 weeks. Because his parents believed hearing was important to a child’s development, they took immediate action to see that he had every opportunity. He found that he was able to compete and excel wherever applied, including Varsity football, Eagle rank in Boy Scouts and National Honor Society to name a few. Zach is headed to Oklahoma State University, where he plans to major in marketing and to work in Social Media. A goal of his is to spread the word to parents of children with hearing impairment that wearing a hearing aid will not affect their ability in the classroom or on the sports field.
