Granville Health System recently named Carla Gray Light of Oxford the recipient of the fifth annual Sam Perry Scholarship.

The foundation established the scholarship fund in memory of physicians’s assistant Sam Perry. It is awarded to a Granville County resident who has been accepted into a two- or four-year allied health program at an accredited school and who intends to pursue a career in an allied healthcare field.

Light is the daughter of Nancy and Gerald Light. She graduated from J.F. Webb High School of Health & Life Sciences and currently attends UNC-Wilmington. Light was chosen based on her academic performance, which included graduating valedictorian of her high school class, as well as her community involvement and extra-curricular activities.
