Thomas M. Barger Family Endowed Scholarship

Thomas M. Barger was a beloved instructor of physics and chemistry at University High School from 1913-1943. He left an indelible mark on the students of U-High and was fondly remembered in many poems, skits, and for his saxophone performance during senior activities in 1925. The first edition of the U-High yearbook, The Clarion, was dedicated to him in 1929. The Thomas M. Barger Family Scholarship was established in 2015 by Carter and Thomas Barger, III in honor of their grandfather. The scholarship will be awarded annually, with one award given to a U-high student who excels in physics and one award to a student who excels in chemistry.
