Barbara Krell Memorial Scholarship

This annual $1,000 scholarship is given annually to a student of the Northwest College of Art & Design. Barbara was a long time Viking Fest volunteer & a talented amateur artist and active member of the Poulsbo Artist League, serving as the League’s Historian at the time of her death on January 1st, 2000. She found great pleasure in instilling children with an understanding of, and a love of art, serving for many years as an Art Docent at Breidablik Elementary School, near Poulsbo. She also sang in her church’s contemporary choir, taught in its religious education program, tutored for the Literacy Council of Kitsap County, and helped raise funds for breast cancer research. Barbara loved the outdoors, especially the Olympic Mountains and the Grand Canyon – scenes from her hikes there were frequent subjects of her art.
