A new scholarship fund is being established in memory of former Cape Hatteras Elementary School principal Ray Gray, Jr. by his family.

Ray was a lifelong educator, serving as a tennis coach, science teacher, assistant principal, and elementary school principal on his native island of Hatteras. He was an avid surfer, and most enjoyed sessions on the north side of the first jetty in Buxton, eponymously named “Ray’s Rights.” Ray’s proudest achievement was helping support and encourage hundreds of Hatteras Island youth through education and sport.
