Mead Bandwagon Vice President
Amanda began playing the flute while at Midway Elementary School. Her interest in instrumental music grew while in band at Northwood and Mead. Although marching band was a particular challenge due to lingering effects from previous medical treatments, she experienced great satisfaction and enjoyment from the trips and competitions. Between the ages of 11 and 17, Amanda endured brain surgeries, radiate and chemotherapy for a brain tumor plus other medical complications. During this time she developed much compassion and a desire to help others, as evident by more than 500 hours of community service through Girl Scouts. American Childhood Cancer Organization Inland NW and other groups. Unfortunately, Amanda's last medical challenge, six months of intensive chemotherapy and a stem cell transplant to treat Acute Myelocytic Leukemia (AML), proved to be insurmountable and she passed away on Dec. 30, 2006. This scholarship is a tribute to her legacy of compassion and service to others, perseverance in overcoming challenges while pursuing her interests and goals, and enjoyment of instrumental music and the Mead band program.
