Remembering Cooper Burchenal

December 28, 2015
The Leadership Montana family has suffered a great loss with the passing of Cooper Burchenal. A member of the Class of 2008, he served on the LMT governing board and was very active in our alumni organization. He touched many of our lives through Leadership Montana.

For those that knew Cooper, it was easy to see and feel his zest for life. He had a bright light and an even brighter smile. He was a great entrepreneur and used his many talents to make Montana a better place.
