“What you sounded like and your willingness to work were the abiding concerns. (Barry) had those nailed. Over the decades, (Barry) blazed a trail that is no longer possible without a higher education. To that end we would like to announce the launch of the Pat Barry Memorial Scholarship Fund,” Roy wrote in the release.
“Over the decades, (Barry) found himself surrounded by a cadre of loyal fans, from Hall of Famers to countless up and coming broadcasters. Their dedication was rooted in (Barry’s) lifetime of helping others, something that you help to continue,” the release stated.
The goal of the scholarship is to ensure that Barry will continue to have an impact on the Cincinnati area and its people.
