Thomas Barbush, friends, and family
This scholarship was established in 2007 by the friends and family in memory of C. Donald Barbush.
C. Donald Barbush, class of 1957, was a four-year letterman in basketball. A 5' 9" guard, he was only the second player in Shippensburg's history to score 1,000 points in their career, finishing his career with a total of 1,033 points.
As a senior, Donald ranked among the nation’s leading foul shooters and was voted second team All-PSAC. His efforts helped lead Ship to a new record of 12 wins in a season. This was the first winning season for the Red Raiders in six years. Don was inducted into the Shippensburg University Sports Hall of Fame in 2001. In 2006, he was inducted into the Capital Area Chapter of the PA Sports Hall of Fame.
Following his graduation from Shippensburg, Donald entered the teaching profession. He served as a teacher and principal for Lower Dauphin School District, retiring in 1988. Upon his retirement from public education, he became the director of the Masonic Children's Home in Elizabethtown, Pennsylvania, retiring from that position in 1995.
