The family of the late Richard H. Nelson is grateful to the Granville Education Foundation for assistance in helping to establish a scholarship fund to honor his memory and his career in education.  Richard Nelson was a long-time principal and school board member in Granville County, serving as Principal of Creedmoor Elementary and Hawley Middle Schools.  After retirement, he served on the Granville County Board of Education, with his combined years of service in education totaling more than forty years. The family is working to establish a scholarship in his name to be awarded annually to a South Granville High School graduating senior planning to continue their education.   There are plans to hold one event each year to raise additional funds for the scholarship.  The scholarship amount will depend upon the amount of funds raised prior to the first awarding of the scholarship, perhaps in the spring of 2014 but no later than the spring of 2015.  It is the family's hope that we can eventually raise enough funds to fully endow the Richard H. Nelson Scholarship so that at least one graduating senior can benefit on a continual basis.  To contribute or to find out more information, please contact the Granville Education Foundation.
