Barbara Ann Stout (Ledford) was born in 1950 in a barn in Hazard, Kentucky. After living for a period of time in an orphanage, her mother, once an adult, retrieved Barbara. Later, Barbara became the oldest of nine children. After moving with her family to rural Ohio, the family continued to experience financial hardships. Despite the many challenges she would experience as a child and adult, Barbara leveraged her Appalachian heritage to persevere. She later provided care to her aging parents, supported her family, and took pride in the accomplishments of her two children, one a retired Army military police officer and the other an emergency nurse and educator. This scholarship was formed to honor Barbara Ann Stout and recognize the strength and endurance of persons from Appalachia.
