Junior League of Ann Arbor Establishes Scholarship Fund in Honor of Longest-Serving Member, Dr. Anjie Stoltz

ANN ARBOR, MI | June 2017. The Junior League of Ann Arbor (JLAA) has established a scholarship fund in tribute to Dr. Anjanette Stoltz, its longest-serving active member with 26 years of active service. She is one of only four Junior League members in the State of Michigan to achieve this distinction.

Dr. Stoltz joined the JLAA in 1991 while she was a resident at the University of Michigan Hospital. During her time with the JLAA, she has held 16 different positions, some several times, including President during 2004 -2005.

Dr. Stoltz has been an inspiration to so many as a leader, mentor, and volunteer. She has always made herself available to all members, to listen, give advice, and encourage members to grow into opportunities that the JLAA provides.

“Joining the Junior League of Ann Arbor was one of the best decisions that I made as a young professional woman,” Dr. Stoltz says. “Over the years, it has given me the opportunity to volunteer for worthy causes in my community, network with other professional women, create lasting friendships, and gain skills in non-profit management and fundraising. It is a blessing to have such a vital and impactful women's non-profit organization in our community. I would encourage all young women to join the Junior League and make a difference as a trained volunteer!”

The Anjanette Stoltz Scholarship Fund will be used to support current and potential members in need of financial assistance to pay dues of the Junior League of Ann Arbor. The JLAA hopes that the scholarship fund will provide an additional 26 or more years of active service by members who may not have been able to join the league or stay active without the assistance of the fund. To date, over $2000 has been raised.
