The annual MCC wrestling scholarship fundraiser has become the Dan Burt Memorial Wrestling Golf Scramble in honor of the former Jayhawk wrestler and coach. As a wrestler, Dan helped MCC capture two MCCAA state championships between 1974-76. He then became a Jayhawk assistant wrestling coach and was part of the staff that guided MCC to an NJCAA national runner-up finish in 1980. Dan passed away on Jan. 15, 2012 after a courageous battle against cancer  in which he displayed the same competitive spirit he had as a Jayhawk wrestler. He was a regular at the annual wrestling scholarship golf scrambles and his presence will be sorely missed.
