Darla Hall-Barrett served Fairbanks Local Schools from 1991 – 2008 when she lost a long and courageous battle with cancer. Mrs. Hall-Barrett was originally employed at both the elementary and middle schools as the school counselor, and in later years worked solely at the elementary.
Mrs. Hall-Barrett was passionate about the arts, and brought the arts to students through an artist in residency program and through her puppetry. Her generous donation to Fairbanks allows for this scholarship in her honor.
The intent is to award $1,000 in 2017.
Applicants must be Fairbanks High School Seniors who have participated in the arts for two or more years.
