Burrola Memorial Scholarship.The scope currently includes two high school scholarships.The first is presented a student of the Glendale Union High School District, where Rudy served over twenty-five years as teacher, coach, and guidance counselor.The second is presented to a student in Rudy's hometown of Superior, Arizona. It is our desire to expand the program to include as many areas and deserving college-bound youths as possible. W.I.N.G.S.Rudy C. BurrolaOn September 19, 1931, Rudy Burrola entered the classroom of life; a classroom that would offer its share of challenging assignments, but certainly one which would render numerous invaluable lessons. Rudy C. Burrola was born in Superior, Arizona into a fatherless household, to an extraordinary mother; one who toiled in depression-gripped times, but was still able to place nourishment in front of him and prayer always behind him. Very well aware that academic success could extricate a small-town boy from the clench of poverty, from the potential throes of an uncomfortable life, Rudy graduated from Superior High School with honors.An MVP baseball pitcher and outfielder, he attended and played ball at Arizona State College (now University) while pursuing a degree in Education. As fate would have it, Rudy's education was interrupted because of the financial burden shouldered by his mother, Tillie.He went back home to work the copper mines of Superior... with his new bride, Dolores.Upon her insistence and his ethic, Dolores commuted Rudy to and from Tempe to finally complete his degree in 1959.His first assignment was at home, Superior High School, as an English teacher and baseball coach. Seeing the need for providing larger opportunities for his family and him, in 1968 Rudy moved his family to Phoenix, and began his twenty-five year career as teacher, counselor, and coach in the Glendale Union High School District. In those twenty-five years, Rudy had the great privilege of making very special friends; of helping mold decent and directed human beings; of offering his shoulders as a carriage for plight.His rewards for working with disadvantaged youth were conferred upon him when the student recognized that no matter the socioeconomic climate in which he or she resided, "disadvantaged" was indeed a misnomer. Upon his retirement in 1992, Rudy continued to work with inner-city youth, still affecting lives. Upon his death on March 19, 1998, Rudy continues his work through all his friends and family...still affecting lives.
