The Murice C. Talley Memorial Scholarship was established by his family to honor his life and his commitment to ensuring that young people are encouraged to continue their education after high school and are able to access the financial resources to do so.
Murice Talley was a leader in the furniture industry in Morganton and Burke County and made his home here for many years. He believed in the worth of every individual and was a beloved boss and colleague, known for providing encouragement and support whenever it was needed. This scholarship honors that special legacy and is intended to convey to its recipients what Mr. Talley would want them to know and believe about themselves: each person has special gifts and the potential to use them to better themselves, their family and our community.
