Dan Burden Endowment

The Dan Burden Endowed Scholarship is an endowment that’s been created to honor Coach Dan Burden upon his retirement.

For more than 35 years, Coach Dan Burden has been teaching students at Clarksville Academy how to solve the math problems he kindly gives them along with the complex equations that make up life itself. On the football field, in his trophy-filled classroom, and in the crowded hallways, Coach Burden has influenced generations of students and inspired them to succeed.

“The most important thing is to understand students—identify with them. Teachers can’t communicate to the whole world, but they can connect with the person in front of them.”  – Dan Burden

CA has approximately 1,200 graduates. If each graduate gave $10, we could raise $12,000—if everyone gave $50 we would raise $60,000! Please take a moment to honor Coach Burden by donating whatever amount you’re able. Every cent counts and we’re incredibly grateful.


Thanks to you, we’ve raised $17,000 of our $50,000 goal so far!
