Sweet road trip

Karl E. Burgher, Econ’84, PhD MinE’85, has a taste for cinnamon rolls and a book that documents his quest for the perfect pastry through south central Missouri small towns along what he calls The Ozarks Cinnamon Road.

Burgher is a former interim chair of economics and a lecturer in engineering management and systems engineering at Missouri S&T. He and his wife, Lynn, and friend Don Walker travel to towns such as Edgar Springs, Arcadia and St. James for the culture and friendship found there — and the perfect cinnamon roll.

“I’ve liked sugar and cinnamon rolls my whole life,” Burgher says.

The book is published by Agnes Press, and copies can be ordered through cinnamon@sunshinevalley.org.
