The Gregory Family

 

From left to right: Ray, Lisa and Steve Gregory.

We are honored to recognize The Gregory Family - Ray, Lisa, and Steve - as the recipient of our 2014 Outstanding Philanthropist Award.

Mr. T. Raymond (Ray) Gregory, founded Canton-based Gregory Industries, a leading manufacturer of highway guardrails and galvanized coatings, in 1957. He attributes his success to belonging to a very generous, supportive community. Ray, his son T. Stephen (Steve) Gregory and daughter-in-law Lisa Warburton-Gregory, have made a positive difference in the lives of so many by giving back with their resources, time and involvement to several organizations.

Aultman Hospital has been a passion of Ray and the late Virginia (Gina) Smyth Gregory as well as Steve and Lisa. Ray served on the board of directors from 1963 – 1984, serving as chairman of the board from 1978 – 1980. Virginia was a founding member of the Women’s Board of Aultman Hospital in 1969 and served until 1994. Steve has been on the board of directors since 1999, serving as Board chairman from 2011 – 2013. Lisa joined the Women’s Board in 2002 and is still currently very active. She served as Women’s Board President 2010 – 2012 and as Chairman of the major fundraiser “The Angel Auction” in 2008. She also served on the Aultman Health Foundation Board from 2010 – 2012.

The Gregorys donated funds for a state-of-the-art training center “The Gregory Family Training Center,” located in the College of Nursing and Health Sciences at Aultman’s main campus. They also give a scholarship each year to a student at Aultman College in memory of Ray’s sister which covers 100% of a student’s tuition.

Steve and Lisa currently chair the Alexis de Tocqueville Society for United Way of Greater Stark County. They were the Honorary Chairs of the Wilderness Center's 2013 auction, and Lisa has chaired the annual fundraiser for Meals on Wheels of Stark and Wayne Counties for the past two years. One of Lisa's greatest achievements was raising more than $430,000 for the Women's Board Compassionate Care Center of Aultman Hospital in 2008 as Co-Chair of the Angel Auction. She currently serves as the Child & Adolescent Behavioral Health (C&A) Immediate Past President of the Board.

Other organizations supported by the Gregory Family are JRC, Blessings in a Backpack, Canton Symphony, The Canton Art Museum, Shared Blessings, Arts in Stark, Stark State Foundation Board and North Canton Medical Foundation.

The National Philanthropy Day luncheon celebration will be held on Friday, November 14, 2014, at the Hilton Akron/Fairlawn. Sponsorships are now available. For more information, click here.
