The Absher/Moxley Memorial Scholarship was established through the Surry County Schools Educational Foundation in 2011. The scholarship is named for two brothers who lost their young lives within a four-year period, due to the adverse effects of prescription drug addiction. Matthew Absher and Brandon Moxley were both deeply beloved by many: their loving family, friends, and Alleghany High School classmates. This memorial scholarship is being established as a gift to educate and help prevent prescription drug abuse among students in Surry County Schools.
