Book Sale in Memory of Wanda Bolze Raises Record Amount

A new record was set at the 10th Annual Wanda Bolz Memorial Scholarship book sale at Somerset Community College (SCC). In total, $2,611 was raised for the fund, which awards a $1,000 scholarship per year to a non-traditional female SCC Computer and Information Technologies (CIT) student with a sophomore standing.

Bolz, a long-time staff and faculty member of SCC, lost her battle with pancreatic cancer on November 27, 2006. Since that time, friends, family and co-workers have been honoring her memory in different ways, with the book sale being held the past several years. In total, the sale has now raised more than $11,000 for the scholarship.

Monetary contributions to the Wanda Bolz Memorial Scholarship may be mailed at any time to Somerset Community College, c/o Cindy Clouse, 808 Monticello Street, Somerset, KY 42501. Checks should be made payable to the SCC Foundation with the Wanda Bolz Memorial Scholarship noted in the memo line. Contributions to the SCC Foundation are tax deductible.
