Mirabel Burleson is the gifted, witty, dog-mushing daughter of poet extraordinaire Derick Burleson.
With Derick's passing, Mirabel's opportunity for a tuition waiver (as the daughter of a UA professor) was lost as well. In an effort to start the college savings process for Mirabel, we are starting this fund. According to the UAF website (http://college-tuition.startclass.com/l/66/University-of-Alaska-Fairbanks) first year, in-state tuition would be $17,398.
This is a bold goal. Like many of us, Derick lived a rustic, frugal life, so please don't worry if a donation isn't possible!
