James Wilson Anderson Scholarship

Scholarship Value: $625
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 until a few years ago. He was a member of the Cowboy Joe Club for some time and continues to be an avid fan of the Cowboy Teams, though these days, his source is TV or radio. Jim still keeps sharp by staying abreast of current events, even at the age of 87. Though his eyesight is failing, he reads the daily paper using a magnifying glass. He watches (or perhaps listens) to C -Span and other news programs. He has a remarkable memory and is a reliable source of Evanston history. Jim is a graduate of 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 has 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 has great respect for the University of Wyoming, so has asked that this scholarship be used at UW.
