This award was established by Julie Kenley in remembrance of her daughter, Anya, who was 16 years old when she died of lymphoma. She was an accomplished dancer, musician and writer. Anya rejoiced in the arts. Had she lived, she would have been both an artist contributor and a patron. She preferred that her opportunity not be lost but passed on to other earnest students.
