Billy S. Murray, Sr. Scholarship
BACKGROUND: Billy S. Murray, Sr. was a professional farrier and a long time 4-H leader and supporter in the Southeast District. Billy led 4-H horse clubs in both New Hanover and Brunswick counties. He was also an active member of several horse organizations in Southeastern NC, including the Carolina Classic Horsemen’s Association, the Seagate Saddle Club, the Brunswick County and Columbus County Horsemen’s Association. He was always willing to lend a hand and help out other horse owners and youth in a time of need.

This scholarship was established to carry on Billy’s tradition of supporting youth through 4-H horse activities.
