Tammy Burton was a successful athlete, competing in volleyball, softball, and basketball while attending Odin High School.  In volleyball, she was named to the MTC all-conference team 3 years in a row and was named team captain in her final two seasons.  As a softball player, she was named to the MTC all-conference team 3 years in a row and was named co-captain in her final season.

As a basketball player, Tammy would become the first female to play on
the boys’ basketball team. She played on the junior varsity team for two years and
then became the first athlete to co-op with another school when she joined the
Sandoval high school girls’ varsity team. In her time there she was a two-time
letter winner and was named co-captain for her senior season.

After graduation, Tammy went on to play two years of collegiate volleyball at Kaskaskia College.  Her athleticism was recognized as she was inducted into the Kaskaskia College Hall of Fame in 2011.   Tammy will be introduced Saturday by her brother, Jeff Burton.  Congratulations Tammy Burton, 2021 Hall of Fame inductee!
