Joan Andrews Scholarship

Joan Andrews was a true hearing advocate and among the core group of individuals who formed the state organization Florida Association of Self Help for Hard of Hearing People (FLASHHH) now known as Hearing Loss Association of Florida (HLA-FL). Her three daughters have graciously created the JOAN ANDREWS SCHOLARSHIP in her memory to assist an individual who has not previously attended the HLAA National Convention and who demonstrates in writing a sincere interest in and commitment to sharing HLAA’s mission with others affected by hearing loss. This year’s convention will be held June 20-23 in Rochester, New York.


Join us and others living with hearing loss for an experience you won’t forget. The deadline for consideration was March 1, 2019. Please help us in congratulating Tanya Williams as the 2019 recipient of the HLAA-FL JOAN ANDREWS SCHOLARSHIP.
