Alex Mooney Memorial Scholarship

Alex Mooney's love for the Morgan horse and all the people in the Morgan community was legendary and, in return, she received so much love. Alex passed away on April 2, 2019 at the age of 26. She fought her battle with Cystic Fibrosis head on and never with a complaint. This scholarship is given in memory of Alex.
