Willie Burton

When Willie joined our staff in 1985, the MRC was still in the basement of Ablah Library, Sony still made Betamax VCR’s and your big screen television at home was probably 27 inches. A lot has changed in 25 years; particularly in the area of electronics.  But throughout that period Willie has kept pace with the changes and kept our equipment in working order.    

A Wichita native and East High graduate, Willie received much of his technical training from four years in the Air Force, and classes at Wichita Votech, Wichita State and Columbia College.   He also worked at Beech and Cessna before finally landing at WSU.
Family is important to Willie. His wife is a retired teacher and their son Ramon is a WSU graduate, a great saxophone player and a minister with a church in Houston.  

For the past 25 years, Willie applied his technical knowledge and skills to the great benefit of MRC and our campus clients.   His friendly attitude, infectious laugh and reliable service have made him a valued member of our organization.

Willie was also recently honored as a recepient of the Bender of Twigs Award.  This honor goes to people who have completed 25 years of service at Wichita State University.
