Stanly Health Foundation offers scholarships

The Stanly Health Foundation awards scholarships annually to local students pursuing health care careers.

The Roy and Lou Hinson Scholarship, worth up to $2,500, celebrates the late Roy Hinson’s 41 years of service to Atrium Health, 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 C.B. Crook Family Scholarship, worth up to $5,000, honors the community involvement of the late C.B. Crook and his wife, Betty. The Crooks were philanthropic champions of the Foundation and Mr. Crook chaired the Stanly Society Committee for more than 20 years.

It is the hope of the Foundation Board of Directors that the scholarship recipients will work in our community upon completing their education.

The scholarships are offered to students from the following groups who are enrolled in college or a university for the 2024-2025 school year in a health-related field, have completed a minimum of 60 hours of undergraduate study and have a minimum 3.2 cumulative GPA:
