The truthspaper organization would like to honor Catherine Burroughs on the Emily Howland Education page. Ms. Burroughs is a leader with a pioneer spirit, intellectual brilliance, and the tenacity to take on any challenge. It is apropos to include Catherine Burroughs with the legendary Emily Howland for her endless contribution to education in the Finger Lakes. Bravo!
