Ally Perkins Scholarship

Ally Perkins Scholarship

GVCO, through its Caring Hands Foundation awards a $1000.00 scholarship each year to a student leader who is exemplary in the community through extraordinary community service.

On September 22nd, 2007, our community lost a much loved member of the Great Valley class of 2008, after a long, difficult battle with cancer. Allison “Ally” Perkins was a wonderful, caring young lady who faced adversity with tremendous poise and determination.  Ally participated throughout her years in the girls’ basketball program. Played here at Great Valley in elementary and middle school and later volunteered for three years as manager of the high school program. She will always be remembered as a great friend and teammate, always with a smile, always willing to help.

In 2008 a group of community members decided to establish a scholarship in honor of Ally, to be awarded annually to a graduating senior at Great Valley High School. The scholarship recipient should be a hard working student, displaying outstanding character, who shows strong leadership qualities and a dedication to community.
