The Kiwanis Club of Arlington has established a scholarship in honor of its longtime secretary Richard L. “Dick” Barr, who also served as sponsor for the Washington-Liberty High School Key Club.
The Dick Barr Scholarship will be awarded annually, with preference given to Key Club members from Washington-Liberty and other Arlington high schools.
“The club hopes that many of Dick’s friends will want to honor his memory by helping the youth of Arlington fulfill their dreams of higher education,” Kiwanis Club leaders said.
A resident of Arlington since 1962 and a member of the Kiwanis Club for 27 years, Barr also was active in Clarendon United Methodist Church. He died suddenly last September.
Donations to the Dick Barr Scholarship Fund can be made by a check (payable to Kiwanis Foundation of Arlington) and sent to the foundation, P.O. Box 100131, Arlington, Va. 22210.
