Brad Ballou Memorial Scholarship

On June 1, during the Halifax County High School Senior awards program, three $1,000 scholarships from the Brad Ballou Memorial Scholarship fund were presented by Feleshia Ballou Thornton to Makayla Byrd (center), Telicia Whitlock (second from right) and Mikyler Smalls (second from left). Whitlock will attend Old Dominion University this fall, Smalls will be attending Christopher Newport University and Byrd has narrowed her search down to either Longwood University or Liberty University.
