Second annual event on March 26, 2010
The Corrine Johnson Scholarship Fund is a nonprofit organization that provides scholorships to local college-bound students who have suffered the loss of a parent, guardian or sibling.
Jimmy Johnson, a senior at Andover High School, lost his mother, Corinne Johnson last year.Â The scholarship fund was formed by a friend of Corinne’s, Julie Gadziala, because she was so touched by not only Jimmy’s suffering, but several other kids who she spoke to who shared how hard it as for them.Â When she began her research it was apparent that short of the American Cancer Society (if your parent died) and the Military (if your parent died) there were no scholarships that addressed children who had lost a family member.
