Betty Burroughs (1935 – 2016)
Betty was a founding member of Pacific Rim Potters, South Vancouver Island Potters’ Guild, and Muddy Women. MISSA has been a big part of her life, first as a student and later for many years as a Board member and co-ordinator of ‘Friends of MISSA’.
Betty said of her pottery, ‘my work is functional as well as decorative. I am always thinking how I can improve on what I do and so my work is always changing. There are just so many possibilities to try that I get excited just thinking about them! I just wish there were more hours in a day… week…year!!’
Betty is greatly missed by all at MISSA.
We owe our success over the past 33 years to the dedication and support of our wonderful volunteers and donors. Donations of all denominations make a huge difference to the fiscal sustainability of MISSA. Thank you for considering this model of direct support of our charitable work in arts education.

In addition, MISSA could not run without the amazing beyond-the-call-of-duty contributions made by the Pearson College staff year after year; from the kitchen and dining hall, to maintenance, housekeeping and administration, the staff help to make our students’ stay on campus a rewarding and memorable one. Thank you!
