Barney Morris Scholarship Fund

Barney Morris was born in 1915 in New Liskeard and attended New Liskeard High School in 1929. He played hockey for the New Liskeard Cubs in 1931 and then for the Sudbury Wolves junior hockey team.  He was asked to join the Hershey Bears, the farm team for the Boston Bruins in Hershey Pennsylvania in 1936 and did so for two years. The Boston Bruins recruited him twice while he played with the Hershey Bears. However, as much as he was honoured to have been asked, at the time he felt he could not support a family on the salaries they paid at that time. He then played hockey for the Buffalo Ankerite hockey team in Timmins.

Barney went on to a very successful career in sales and marketing of mining equipment and in partnership started a business called Temiskaming Industrial Mining Equipment  (T.I.M.E.) in 1971. Throughout his life he enjoyed the game of hockey, and was always known as a gentleman and a talented hockey player.

His wife Frances established the fund to provide a scholarship at TDSS for a student who loves the game of hockey as he did, and who is above all a team player and a gentleperson who has proven that sportsmanship and skill creates excellence.
