James Barnett Memorial Scholarship

My big brother, James Barnett, passed away on June 3rd, 2013. He was 27. James attended the University of Evansville and graduated in 2008 with a degree in Political Science. He has three brothers and three sisters who love and miss him dearly, along with a mom and dad who think about him everyday. Along with his large family, James has many friends whose lives changed after he was lost.

James was full of personality, extremely sarcastic and had a strong passion for life, sports, politics and family. We are hoping to continue his legacy by creating a scholarship in his name at the University of Evansville. Every dollar helps! My family cannot thank you enough for your support in helping my brother live on.

Please donate whatever is comfortable or just share our page to get the word out. We have created donor levels that truly reflect some of James's favorite things.

$54 Donation = Cardinal Level. 54 represents the number of wins the St. Louis Cardinals had at home in 2013.
$104 Donation = Lambda Chi Level. 104 represents the number of years Lambda Chi Alpha has been an organization.
$254 Donation = Political Change Level. 254 represents the number of counties there are in Texas. James worked for the Texas Democratic party when he passed away.
