Blood drive, fundraiser keep Terry Moyer’s memory alive
MEDINA – Paula Moyer is continuing to keep her son’s memory alive, raising money for a scholarship and the sports program at Medina Central School.
Today, Moyer held the second annual blood drive and basket raffle in honor of her son Terry Moyer, who was 17 when he died in a tragic car accident on Culvert Road on Aug. 28, 2011.
The family awarded the first scholarship in Terry Moyer’s name this past June. Matthew Montesanti won the $250 scholarship. The scholarship will go to a graduate pursuing a building trades career or playing sports in college.
Terry played football and wrestled at Medina.
“We want to raise money for the scholarship and make sure sports are not cut,” Paula Moyer said. “He loved being in the sports.”
Donors gave 19 pints of blood during the drive at the Oak Orchard Elementary School.
