Quick Access

On behalf of the family of Whitney-Jo Anderson, the Chippewa County Community Foundation is honored to announce the availability of the annual Whitney-Jo Anderson Memorial Dance Scholarship.

On April 19, 2008, the Lord called a precious little girl’s name and she answered his call.  Whitney-Jo was 9 years old when she went to live with her heavenly father.

Anyone who met Whitney-Jo quickly fell in love with her strong personality and her attitude on life.  She loved life even though she had battled a heart condition and cancer for much of her life.  Whitney-Jo’s greatest passion was to dance.  She learned her passion for ballet dancing in the Academy of Performing Arts studio under the caring direction of Luanna Luxton- Armstrong.

The family of Whitney-Jo has created a legacy for their precious angel by establishing the Whitney-Jo Anderson Memorial Dance Scholarship Fund with the Chippewa County Community Foundation.    This scholarship will pay $350 towards dance lessons and/or dance attire.

Applications can be picked up at the Soo Theatre, Allure Dance Studio, Academy of Performing Arts Studio or the Chippewa County Community Foundation – 511 Ashmun St. – Suite 200 (2nd floor of Huntington Bank). Applications are due Nov. 30.
