Eddice B Barber Scholarship
Dr. Eddice Barber, professor emerita from Minnesota State University, endowed the Eddice B. Barber English Scholarship for Northwest Missouri State University English majors. As a student at Northwest, Barber majored in English and speech and graduated in 1942. The Burlington Junction native also has a master's from the University of Colorado at Boulder and a Ph.D. from the University of Minnesota.
Two of Barber's brothers, Lee and Kent, also are Bearcats and have endowed scholarships in their names at Northwest.
A proponent of education at any age, Barber was the co-founder of Mankato Area Life Long Learners, an organization established in 1996 that welcomes individuals to share the joys of learning and friendship in an academic setting.
