The Stanley Health Foundation awards scholarships annually to local students who are pursuing careers in the healthcare field.
The Roy and Lou Henson Scholarship, valued at $2,500, celebrates 41 years of service to Roy Henson at Atrium Health, and his wife Lou, who has retired from public education and has provided many years of volunteer support to Roy M. Henson. Cancer Center.
The CB Kroc Family Scholarship, worth up to $5,000, honors the community involvement of the late CB Kroc and his wife Betty. The Crooks have been charitable champions of the Foundation, and Mr. Crook has chaired the Stanley Community Committee for more than 20 years.
The Foundation’s Board of Directors hope that scholarship recipients will serve in the community upon completion of their education.
Scholarships are awarded to students from the following groups who are enrolled in a college or university for the 2022-2023 academic year in a health-related field, have completed at least 60 hours of undergraduate study and have a GPA of at least 3.2:
