Over the course of 16 years at Georgia Southern University, Burden was a tenured approachable, student-centered professor who taught 13 different courses in sport management and served as an undergraduate program coordinator as well as the faculty advisor for the Sport Management Club. The fund will provide scholarships to deserving sport management students beginning Fall Semester 2019. To find out more about the Dr. Willie J.Burden Memorial Fund, please visit
