Carmelita and Marion Barr Scholarship

The children of Carmelita and Marion Barr created this scholarship to honor the legacy of their parents who believed in the importance of an education and helping those who help themselves. Carmelita and Marion also believed in investing in the youth, as they are the fabric of the community’s future growth and success. They grew up during the depression era and worked hard to achieve their goals. Marion put himself through college and graduated with a degree in Chemical Engineering. The couple returned to the Pacific Northwest and settled in Chehalis after retirement. This scholarship is intended for students pursuing a career in Science, Technology, Engineering and/or Math.
