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.
