Background: These annual scholarships are established at the University of Prince Edward Island in honour and memory of Joyce M.(Hooper) Andrew and Erwin Andrew, by their son Bill Andrew and his wife, Denise. Joyce and Erwin resided in Milton, PEI. They Had three sons: Bill, Brian, and Rollin. Erwin Andrew was a member of the Royal Canadian Air Force. In 1948, as part of his service, the family moved from the Island to Europe. Several family moves occurred throughout Mr. Andrew's career. Following retirement in 1967, the Andrew family returned to Prince Edward Island where they took up residence in South Milton where he became part of the horse breeding business for more than 50 years. Joyce(Hooper) Andrew was a teacher and aside from her hobbies of knitting, quilting, cooking, reading, playing bridge, skating, and snowshoeing, she was also very involved in community initiatives. She was the chairwoman of the Provincial Exhibition Committee for the Prince Edward Island Women's Institute. Apart from her Women's Institute involvement, Joyce was active in church work. She was the Vice President and Secretary of Education of the Milton ACW and member of the PEI Board of Anglican Church Women. For many years she was a Sunday School Teacher. To quote Mrs. Andrew "Being involved in volunteer work one becomes more aware of the needs and concern of not only one's community, but the universal community. Action should follow awareness."
