Donald Glen Barr
The Donald Glen Barr Scholarship Fund was established with a gift from the estate of Donald Glen Barr. Glen was born in 1921 on his family’s farm, 5 miles west of Kahoka, Missouri where he made his home until his death. He graduated from Kahoka High School in 1939. He served in the U.S. Army from November 10, 1944 to November 8, 1946 in the European African Middle Eastern Theater. He was proud of his military service and carried his discharge with him from the day he left the service until his death.
Glen’s contentment came from working on his farm. He was most happy when he was working seven days a week. His cattle had been his pride and joy and he had enjoyed the time spent raising them. When he wasn’t farming, he loved working in his shop creating and building trailers and other farm related items, often for friends and neighbors.
