Anderson says she is looking forward to using her year representing the Tri-Cities making a difference in the community, and promoting the importance of Shiners Hospital for Children. It was in a Washington Shiners Hospital in 2014 that she had spinal fusion surgery to correct her scoliosis. She currently has two rods and 19 screws to keep her spine straight. Anderson attributes her recovery from this surgery to the support of the doctors, nurses, and staff at the Shiner’s Hospital for Children in Spokane.

Anderson wants to give back to the organization that she now considers family. Her goal is to raise money for children struggling to cover the cost of care at local Shiners Hospitals, funded by donations. She also will work on getting toys and board games donated for the patients.

“Along with promoting Shiners Hospital for Children, this year I also want to encourage young people in our area to be themselves, stand tall and achieve their dreams through confidence, strength, and being the best “you” you can be. Don’t think you can, know you can!” said Anderson.

Miss Tri-Cities is a title under the Miss America Organization, which “stands for empowering young women across the country to be the best they can be through leadership, talent, communication skills and smarts.”
