Barrett Family Endowed Scholarship

Barrett Family Endowed Scholarship

A conversation with Christie Barrett Harrison.

Why did you choose to create a scholarship at Auburn University?
Auburn holds a special place my heart. There is no place in the world like Auburn University.

What would you want the recipients of this scholarship to know about the person for whom it is named?
This scholarship has been established by the Barrett Family, including my brother, Will Barrett (BSBA – 2011), myself (BSBA – 2009; MAcc – 2010), and my parents, Mark and Nancy Barrett. Our family shares a love for all things Auburn.

What do you hope your recipients gain through this scholarship?
I hope the recipient of this scholarship is encouraged and empowered to keep working hard, stretching themselves, and helping others around them.
