The Julia Anne Kirsch Foundation, a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, is dedicated to improving the lives of those with significant developmental disabilities and their families. The Foundation honors the memory of a very special girl, Julia Anne Kirsch, who had multiple disabilities and faced many medical challenges. It was through Julia that her parents, Teri and Cliff, became aware of the real challenges and barriers that the disabled and their families face every day of their lives. It was also through Julia that they learned of the special potential each individual holds and that they and their families can lead a full and happy life.
The Foundation established a scholarship at the Glen Rock High School in 2012. Each June, the Foundation proudly awards a scholarship to a Glen Rock High School senior who demonstrates a strong desire to pursue college studies that will lead to a career helping the disabled. . . .
