Anne & Matt Harbison Scholarship 

In keeping with the goals of P. Buckley Moss, who struggled with dyslexia during her school years, this grant represents the artistís dedication to the field of special education.

Students with a learning disability often graduate from high school with no recognition of their hard work and perseverence toward achieving their academic, technical, or artistic goals. When a student does attain and surpass expectations, there is often no extrinsic reward or incentive. The P. Buckley Moss Society - Anne and Matt Harbison Scholarship is intended to help fill that void.

The scholarship is named to honor the Societyís first president, Anne Harbison, and her husband, Matt, the first treasurer. The Harbisons were instrumental in founding the Society. As a school counselor, Anne understood firsthand the challenges faced by students with learning disabilities.

Nominations for the Anne and Matt Harbison Scholarship can be made only by members of the P. Buckley Moss Society.
