Students had two opportunities to apply for scholarships in 2023 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 60 hours of undergraduate study by the end of the spring 2023 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 was awarded to Gavin Olivieri of Albemarle who is working toward his Bachelor of Science degree in Exercise and Sport Science from UNC Chapel Hill.
After earning his undergraduate degree, he plans to pursue a Master of Health Administration. His career goals focus on improving operations in health care settings.
The Hinson Scholarship celebrates the late Roy Hinson’s 41 years of service to the local hospital, and his wife, Lou, who is retired from public education and provided many years of volunteer support to the Roy M. Hinson Cancer Center.
The Stanly Health Foundation C.B. Crook Family scholarships for 2023 were awarded to Ashley Cody and Hailey Caudle.
Cody is attending Pfeiffer University and will graduate with a Bachelor’s of Science in Nursing degree. She is a teammate in the Medical-Surgical department at Atrium Health Stanly.
She plans to continue her education by pursuing an MSN and becoming a pediatric nurse practitioner in Stanly County.
Caudle is studying to earn a bachelor’s degree in psychology from Pfeiffer University. Her plans include continuing her studies to become a therapist. She hopes to practice in Stanly County.
The C.B. Crook Family Scholarship honors the years of philanthropic work by the late C.B. Crook and his wife, Betty.
