The Carrie Elmore Award was established with the Surry County Schools Educational Foundation in 2011 in honor of Carrie Elmore. Carrie Elmore was a student at Central Middle School who passed away in October 2012, at eleven years old, after battling Ewing Sarcoma since the age of five. This award was established as a result of a Senior Graduation Project by Courtney Scott, Carrie’s cousin. It consists of $500.00 to help grant the wish of a child in grades K-8 in Surry County Schools with a chronic or terminal illness.
