Welcome to Anna's Foundation
In memory of
her friends, family, and former teachers thought it fitting to create a memorial scholarship to sponsor a student’s participation in the German Exchange Program. The scholarship’s goal is to provide a foreign travel opportunity to a Noblesville High School student who displays a hunger for adventure and a passion for learning.
Congratulations to the 2012 Scholarship Recipients

Anna changed my perspective on life. She has been my inspiration, my hero, and someone I will never forget. My freshman year for honors English I wrote an essay about Anna’s struggle fighting cancer and how the world should view life as Anna did. My teacher was inspired and entered it into a contest. It won and her story is now on a famous website. I’ve gotten comments on the website post on how amazing and strong Anna is. I love Anna. I’ll never forget her presence.

I’ll never forget orientation at Freiburg (Germany) University. There was a very loud and vibrant person in the class. I was thinking, “Who is this overly cheerful, smiley, inquisitive, and loud student? Is she for real? Can anyone be this happy ALL the time?” Two weeks later this fire had not burned down. Anna, who had become known as “the girl always asking questions,” had proven that it wasn’t a superficial front. She was this bubbly, beautiful, and radiant all the time. We all fell in love with Anna in Freiburg and spent wonderful trips and weekends with her; we even braided her dreadlocks on my balcony.
