Murray’s Light Scholarship Fund
Murray Ashley Nixon was a joyful burst of bright light from the day she was born in February of 1997. She spent 18 years living her best life and loving her family and friends. Murray loved laughing and making other people smile. Her passion was her relationships with people. She loved people “not a little, but a lot,” as she would always say. In her last journal entry, Murray declared that this was going to be her “best year yet,” and as she wrote about her plans, she stated that she hoped for “only happy things” for her future. Murray graduated from Stratford Academy in 2015 where she was a well-rounded student who was active in many extracurricular activities. She had just started her freshman year at Georgia Southern University and had her whole life ahead of her when she was tragically killed in an accident on December 22, 2015. Who knows what she would have accomplished had she lived into adulthood? Because her dreams were not realized, our goal is to help other young people follow their passions. We hope that this scholarship will help light a path for a bright future.
