Students had two opportunities to apply for scholarships in 2021 from the Stanly Health Foundation to support their studies in healthcare.

To be considered for either scholarship, a student must be an Atrium Health Stanly teammate, the dependent of a teammate, or a resident of Stanly or Montgomery Counties and have completed at least sixty hours of undergraduate study by the end of the spring 2021 semester with a cumulative undergraduate GPA of 3.2 or higher. The student must be accepted into a healthcare program of study for either undergraduate or graduate school.

The Stanly Health Foundation Roy and Lou Hinson Scholarship, totaling $2,500, was awarded to Brittany Beachum of Albemarle. Brittany is working toward her Master of Science degree in Respiratory Therapy and currently works at Atrium Health Stanly.
