This scholarship is established by Jim and Joyce Anderson, long-time Anacortes residents who understand not everyone fits into a 4-year program.  Believing we will need more vocational workers such as plumbers, plasterers, welders, boat mechanics and those pursuing the culinary arts, they hope to help Anacortes students and/ or graduates who wish to pursue a 1 or 2-year vocational program or enroll in a trade or technical school.
