Julie Anderson Wagner Memorial Scholarship
Julie (Anderson) Wagner was a fun-loving and courageous person who was an inspiration to all those who knew her. Julie studied to be a speech-language pathologist at the University of Wisconsin-Madison where she earned a Bachelor (’06) and Master (’08) degree from the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders. She was a very talented and dedicated speech-language pathologist, working in public schools her entire career. Julie was devoted to improving the communication and lives of her students and loved working in the field of education. Julie was a true Badger and took great pride in being a UW alumna. At age 32, Julie lost her battle with Cystic Fibrosis. Although Julie fought this chronic disease her entire life, she never let it define her. Julie will always be remembered for her incredible courage, strength, and positive-loving spirit. To honor Julie’s memory, the Julie Anderson Wagner scholarship was established in her name in 2015 and is awarded annually to a graduate student studying speech language pathology at UW-Madison, who shares Julie’s passion for improving children’s lives through better communication.
