Perry W. Barnett Memorial Endowed Scholarship

This Scholarship is available for Fall Semester Only.

Amount: $500

Established by his dear friend, Nancy Pindur, and several family members, colleagues, and longtime friends, this memorial scholarship honors Perry W. Barnett, welding instructor at PDCCC from 2004 to 2007. This larger than life “welding guy” (A.K.A. “D-Max” by his students) found special purpose and meaning in life through his students, for whom he wished to instill more than welding skills. This scholarship was endowed so that Perry’s wishes would continue in his memory.


The scholarship must be used for tuition for courses taken at PDCCC. Applicants will be scored based on the criteria listed below, with preference being given in order of the following:

  1. High school students taking dual-credit welding courses at PDCCC.
  2. Other students enrolled in the Welding Program at PDCCC.
  3. Worthy/Needy Applicant (paragraph describing financial need must be attached to application and FAFSA will be used to determine/verify need).

Application Process:
