Book sale by SCC faculty members raises money for the late Wanda Bolzes Memorial Scholarship Fund

SCC faculty member Pam Bridgman, Beverly Gaddis and Cathy Epperson coordinated a used book sale in November to raise money to support the Wanda Bolze Memorial Scholarship Fund at Somerset Community College.

The sale raised $1,159 for the scholarship fund. Bolze, who passed away in November of 2006, was a longtime SCC faculty member. November is National Pancreatic Cancer Month. Pancreatic cancer took Bolzes life.

SCC faculty and staff members donated the books. Some of the donated books were given to the SCC Yellow Ribbon Project and will be sent to members of the United States military services serving overseas.

SCC has scheduled the dedication of a memorial in memory of Bolze for Friday, Dec. 4, at 10 a.m. The memorial and the dedication will be located on the south side of the Cooper Building located on the SCC Somerset Campus North. SCC President and CEO Dr. Jo Marshall; John Bolze, her husband; and Dr. Richard Held, Bolzes pastor, are scheduled to speak.
