In 2009, the Granville Health System Board of Trustees and the GHS Foundation Board of Directors established a scholarship fund in honor of Sam Perry, a physician’s assistant whose specialized medical care earned him deep respect from both patients and peers throughout his career at Granville Health System, one of North Carolina’s leading rural hospitals.

Every year, the GHS Foundation awards its Sam Perry Memorial Scholarship to a Granville County resident who has been accepted into a two-year or four-year Allied Health Program at an accredited school with the intention to pursue a career in the healthcare field. Programs eligible for this scholarship include clinical laboratory sciences, physical therapy, occupational therapy, radiological science, pharmacy, RN, BSN, ADN, LPN, dentistry and related careers, physician assistant, and nurse practitioner.
