The Stephanie Russell Memorial Scholarship was created in 2012 in honor of Stephanie Russell, daughter of Granville County Schools employee Nancy Russell. Each year the scholarship is awarded to a senior from South Granville High School and a senior from Granville Central High School (the high schools where Stephanie classmates are now attending).
"Our daughter, Stephanie, was registered and eager to start kindergarten at Butner-Stem Elementary in July of 2000. But our family was in an automobile accident on July 5 and she didn’t get that chance. We would like her generous spirit to live on and be able to offer assistance to a deserving GCS student to further their education. It was very important to Stephanie at a young age to help others and make sure children’s needs were being met. Her evening prayers would always include something like this, “Please help kids who don’t have beds to sleep in” or “I hope all kids can have good food to eat”. And, her concern was so genuine—especially for a five year old! Our family wants to “give” in memory of her." --Nancy Russell
