The Coby Halifax Memorial Scholarship was established in honor of Coby Durrett Halifax.

Coby was an extraordinary husband, son, brother, and friend. He lived with a passion for life guided by his strong faith as he walked with the LORD. Coby was humble, kind, and compassionate. He attended Abilene Christian University and graduated from Hendrick School of Radiography. Coby was always for the underdog. He noticed those overlooked by others and made people feel special, important and valued. From his early career at Gleneagles Country Club in Plano, guiding people through the mortgage process in Houston, to discovering his professional passion caring for patients at Hendrick Medical Center in Abilene, he looked for ways to help others. Coby’s memory will live on through the Coby Halifax Memorial Scholarship.
