James Wilson Anderson Scholarship


Scholarship Value: $5,000
Awards Available: 2

Jim Anderson was born and raised in Evanston, Wyoming. After serving four years in the army during WWII, Jim worked his entire life at the Blyth and Fargo Co. general store. Once Jim retired he was an active member of the Senior Citizens Group and representative of the AARP for many years. He traveled rather extensively. He was a member of the Cowboy Joe Club for some time and was an avid fan of the Cowboy Teams. Jim kept sharp by staying abreast of current events. Even when his eyesight began to fail, he read the daily paper using a magnifying glass. He watched (or perhaps listened to) C -Span and other news programs. He had a remarkable memory and was a reliable source of Evanston history. Jim graduated from Evanston High School. Because of the Depression and his service during the Second World War, he was not able to further his education. Jim never married and had no children of his own, but wanted to give back to the community of Evanston. Understanding the importance of higher education, Jim decided he would like to establish a scholarship fund benefiting a male and female graduating senior of Evanston High School every year. He had great respect for the University of Wyoming, so he asked that this scholarship be used at UW.
