Sonny Melton Scholarship Fund – The Sonny Melton Scholarship Fund was established at Apex Bank to honor the life and legacy of Sonny Melton, a Big Sandy native who was the first identified victim of the Las Vegas tragedy. In order to celebrate Sonny’s life, the scholarship fund was created to assist graduating Big Sandy High School seniors who desire to pursue a career in nursing. To assist in endowing the fund, Apex Bank has committed to match the first $50,000 in private contributions to the fund.  For more information about the fund or to donate, please click here.
