Langham (’78) was the superintendent of the Elmore County (Ala.) Public Schools, an elected position he has held from 2004 until 2014. In 2012 Langham was named Alabama Superintendent of the Year. He is now the state’s assistant superintendent for external and governmental affairs.
Burylo (’12) began her studies at Faulkner with an undetermined major. After deciding to major in English with a journalism emphasis, she worked with the office of public relations on campus and interned with the Montgomery Advertiser. She was hired to work as a journalist for the Advertiser after graduating in 2012.
Burylo notes that college was sometimes stressful, but she is thankful for the experience.
“I am so appreciative of the mentors, students, and everyone at Faulkner who helped me get here,” says Burylo. “I love going to work every day, meeting new people, and doing research on different things that I wouldn’t have otherwise.”
Burylo remains awestruck by the opportunities that have come her way.
