Daren Burns has been involved in the Beaverton community since he attended school here. He was the second generation of Burns family to graduate from Beaverton High School. After graduating, Burns furthered his education by studying at Mid-Michigan Community College, then joining the work force. He and his wife Tracy have three children who have attended or are currently attending Beaverton schools. Burns is a children's pastor in Albright Shores, a local football announcer, and a forensics judge. He was the captain of the forensics team when he was in high school and loved what it did for those students involved in it. Burns chose to become Board Vice President because he wanted to get further involved in the community and saw serving on the Board of Education as a worthwhile way to contribute.
