Secretary, House of Burnett


From our President

Leland has been the backbone of the House of Burnett for so many years. His work for us as our Secretary will always be remembered. We will look for him at the Highland Games, his “first love”.

Leland will be succeeded by Nicole Zimmerman, of Racine, Wisconsin as Secretary. Nicole is an accomplished woman who will be an excellent Secretary for the House of Burnett.  – Jackelyn A Daugherty, President, Lieutenant House Burnett.

I won’t repeat my own tribute to Leland and which I included in a recent Banner as did our President Jacky but we are all very grateful to Leland for what he has contributed to the success of the House of Burnett. Maybe it is suffice to repeat that in 2009, Leland announced

“I plan on running for Secretary for at least one more year, unless someone would like to take over and give me more time to do research. That would be great.”


James C. A. Burnett of Leys
