Alex Moore scholarship to be given

Published 4:02 pm Friday, January 6, 2012

Family members and friends of Alex Moore are establishing a scholarship in her honor.

The Alex Moore Memorial Scholarship will be awarded later this year to a senior at Jemison High School.

Alex Moore would have graduated from JHS this May, but she died from suicide in May 2010. Classmates came forth after her death to say Moore was bullied constantly at school.

Jill Moore, Alex’s mom, hopes the scholarship can be awarded annually.

Contributions to the scholarship can be made at Regions Bank branches – Alex Moore Memorial Scholarship.

They can also be mailed to 3381 County Road 48, Jemison, AL 35085. Checks should be made out to Alex Moore Memorial Scholarship.
