July, 2021 – We are pleased to announce the winners of the 2021 Neyhart Scholarship to be Brady Warlow, and Brannon Stanfield.
Brady Warlow is a young man whose father has suffered from kidney disease. Brady also has his own physical challenges, and he is studying theatre at Appalachian State University. Brady would like to work in the theater and film industry, and own a production company in the future, while advocating for persons with disabilities working in theater and film.
Brannon Stanfield is a young man whose mother has kidney disease, and she has been Brannon’s primary model of perseverance through adversity while seeking higher education.

Clara Neyhart has devoted her nursing career to the care of patients with kidney disease. Greg Neyhart is a college professor in chemistry. Clara and Greg believe that education often provides the means to reach goals and move forward out of life’s struggles. Kidney disease can be a life-long challenge. The healthcare team provides physical and emotional support needed for healing. The patient, however, must have the courage to face altered dreams, work plans and relationships, in addition to the illness. New goals and future plans are essential to maintain hope and move forward.
In this spirit, Clara and Greg Neyhart have established this scholarship to encourage and support education for people with kidney disease. It is Clara and Greg’s hope that this scholarship will provide the first step for many people toward defining their future, in spite of, rather than because of their kidney disease.
Neyhart Scholarship is awarded annually to a North Carolina resident attending a North Carolina based educational institution (university, community college or vocational/technical school).
Award is available to applicants with kidney disease, kidney transplant or to children of parents with kidney disease or transplant. First priority is given to kidney patients.
