Saturday, September 07, 2019
On Friday, September 6th, Van Vleck ISD rededicated Burl McKinney Stadium after months of renovations. In front of a packed crowd at the Leopards first home football game, VVISD and friends & family of Burl McKinney celebrated the rededication of our stadium.
Burl and his wife Mary Ann came to Van Vleck in 1962. Coach McKinney taught physical education and coached. He started the physical education program at the Van Vleck Elementary School. He was assistant athletic director until he became the athletic director in 1964, a position he held until 1972. In 1972, Mr. McKinney was named principal of Van Vleck Elementary School, a position he held until his death in 1987. In 1988, the football stadium at Van Vleck was rededicated in his honor.
Please join us in thanking Burl and Mary Ann McKinney for their years of service and dedication to the students, staff and community of Van Vleck!
