    BAKERSFIELD, CA, September 24, 2020 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Marquis Who's Who, the world's premier publisher of biographical profiles, is proud to present Sarah C. Burns with the Albert Nelson Marquis Lifetime Achievement Award. An accomplished listee, Ms. Burns celebrates many years' experience in her professional network, and has been noted for achievements, leadership qualities, and the credentials and successes she has accrued in her field. As in all Marquis Who's Who biographical volumes, individuals profiled are selected on the basis of current reference value. Factors such as position, noteworthy accomplishments, visibility, and prominence in a field are all taken into account during the selection process.

Having accrued nearly 25 years of inimitable experience in the fields of history, education and writing, Ms. Burns has garnered a laudable reputation as an adjunct professor on behalf of Antelope Valley College since 2013. Additionally she is an Associate Adjunct Professor with the College of the Canyons since 2005. She began her career in 1996 as an adjunct professor of history at Bakersfield College. Departing from the college in 2002, Ms. Burns subsequently held positions as a lecturer within the history department of California State University between 2002 and 2004, and a social and cultural historian at National University from 2008 until 2016.

As a seasoned researcher in her field, Ms. Burns has notably challenged and addressed some of the common issues in society, such as gender, race relations and human rights. She has also extensively studied women's history and African American history, which she has documented in several scholarly articles. Moreover, Ms. Burns has served as a presenter, speaking at the 2003 Oxford Roundtable on Human Rights and Gender Discrimination. She spoke again the following year at the Second International Conference on European History, From Ancient to Modern, in Athens, Greece, in 2004. In 2012, Ms. Burns returned to Oxford for a second residency for the Women's Leadership Conference. Her articles presented at Athens and Oxford in 2012 were published in academic journals.

Renowned for her writing ability, Ms. Burns has also authored a historical novel, "Daughters of Juno: Chronicle I: Matilda of Argyll," in 2004 through Pentland Press. Its second edition was published as "Matilda of Argyll" in 2007, through University Press of the South. Likewise, she has contributed chapters to two motivational books, "Wake Up and Live the Life You Love," which is a series, and "On an Enlightened Path and With Gratitude." Additionally, Ms. Burns provides her professional expertise as both a ghostwriter and copywriter, and to individuals seeking to establish business plans.

Coming of age in Kentucky, Ms. Burns developed an affinity for reading, especially biographies of significant historical folks from North America. History, as she noted, helped her to better understand society and how it functioned. Following her graduation from high school, Ms. Burns studied at California State University, where she attained a Bachelor of Arts and a Master of Arts in 1994 and 1996, respectively. She later completed residencies through the Oxford Round Table on women in history in 2003 and 2012, as well as a residency at Athens Institute for Educational Research in 2004.

To remain aware of developments effecting her field, Ms. Burns has maintained her professional affiliation with the Oxford Round Table and the honorable society of Phi Alpha Theta, with which she is a lifetime member. In 1998, she was the recipient of an Honorarium for Book Review by Addison Wesley Longman Publications. A celebrated Marquis listee, Ms. Burns has been featured in over 25 editions of Who's Who in America, Who's Who in American Education, Who's Who in the World and Who's Who of American Women.
