On Sept. 11, 2018, Destiny Joy Andersen, an exceptional daughter, sister, cousin, niece, granddaughter, great granddaughter and friend was unfairly taken from this world at the age of 17.
Destiny was full of life and laughter, she was caring and kind, she was ambitious and driven in both her work and education.
Destiny was a hard-working honour student who was set to graduate from Woodstock High School with the Class of 2019, something she was so excited about and looking forward to.
She had so many dreams and ideas for her future. Maybe she would become a doctor? Maybe a physiotherapist? Graphic designer? Author? Maybe there was something out there she had yet to discover. The sky was the limit and she was about to spread her wings.
With her dedication to her job and education in mind we want to create the Destiny Joy Memorial Scholarship Fund to help students like her. We want to help others who dream of their futures, who take pride in their jobs, who give their all to anything they set their mind on, who have a passion for their future education. We want to help those who are not only exemplary students but who are active in their community by either maintaining a job or volunteering with an organization.
We know Destiny had so much potential and so many amazing things ahead of her, and we want to help her name live on.
