Anne Hurd - Keeping Kiwanis Volunteer's Memory Alive
Anne Johnstone Hurd was born in New York City and raised by her grandparents in Connecticut. While living in Norfolk she worked as an administrative assistant for Sealtest Foods while volunteering at St. Andrews Episcopal Church and for the Children’s Hospital of the King’s Daughters. When her husband Mike became president of the Harbor Front Kiwanis Club, which didn’t have female members at the time, Anne founded and became the first president of a women’s auxiliary group, the Harbor Front Ki-Wives, and worked diligently to foster the Keyettes, a service club for high school girls.
After Anne died unexpectedly in 1981 at the age of 41, memorial donations were sent to the Kiwanis Club to raise money for a scholarship. In 1987 the scholarship funds were transferred to the community foundation. The Anne Hurd Memorial Scholarship is for daughters of Kiwanians or female members of high school Key Clubs.
