masters degree from Western Kentucky University. Prior to that...he drew up plans for the old High Street school...for years the only African-American high school in south central Kentucky. Moxley ..who was a Jefferson Award winner in 2002...is also credited with writing Kentucky's first policy on school guidance counseling.
Funeral services for Moxley will be at one p.m. Thursday at Cecelia Memorial Presbyterian Church on College Street in Bowling Green.
