๐Ÿ“ขToday our Hall of Fame spotlight is on Lisa (Brakke) Carlson, Class of 1990!๐Ÿ“ฃ
Lisa may be one of the MOST involved Bulldogs to walk the halls of Burke! While in school, Lisa played soccer, volleyball, was a cheerleader, in show choir, ensemble, school musicals, NHS and more (if you can believe it!). Her senior superlative was "Most Talented" no kidding!
Since Burke, Lisa continues to give back, raising millions of dollars for Burke's stadium renovation beginning in 2024, as well as being a part of Burke Boosters, PTO, Burke BASH, and the Alumni Association...all the while excelling in her career with Pfizer as a Key Acct Mgr for Internal Medicine & Antiviral in Nebraska & Iowa!
If you didn't know Lisa at Burke, you may recognize her last name. Yes, Mr. Rod Brakke, a Burke counselor to many of you, is Lisa's Dad!
Lisa's 2 daughters are also recent Burke grads, a real #BulldogFamily!
Learn more about Lisa and the other inductees and purchase tickets to help us celebrate them on Oct. 7th at burkehighalumni.com/lisa-brakke-carlson-2023-alumni-award-winner/
