The Dr. Randy Foy Scholarship Fund
This scholarship fund honors Randy Foy (GS '67), who dedicated his time and tremendous talents to the Governor's School for nearly 40 years. A world-class conductor and instructor, Dr. Foy was the architect of the instrumental music program at Governor's School West. There he led superb performances. However, his most notable accomplishment was how he used music to open the minds of his students to relevant issues and concepts, elevating their capacity to think freely and critically, thereby positioning them for leadership roles.
Randy Foy's influence on the North Carolina arts community is vast. Even though he was widely accomplished in his professional life, Randy maintained a lifelong passion for the Governor's School, guiding generations of students to hone their intellect, challenge preconceptions and achieve heightened levels of excellence.
The NC Governor's School Foundation honored Randy Foy in 2017 with the Jim Hart Champion Award for extraordinary commitment and contributions to the Governor's School Foundation. We are privileged to extend that recognition with a memorial scholarship in his honor.
