The Foundation also administers the Barry Fanning Memorial Scholarship for students who, in addition to meeting the above criteria, have displayed athletic excellence and plan to continue their athletic careers. Wholly funded by the Kirkland Oldtimers’ Hockey League, this scholarship is dedicated to the memory of Barry Fanning, a popular member of the Oldtimers’ league who sadly died a few years ago.
