wanda bolzeThe annual Wanda Bolz Memorial Scholarship book sale at Somerset Community College will be held Tuesday, November 24, 2015 on the SCC Somerset North Campus, located at 808 Monticello Street in Somerset. The sale will be set up in the Citizens National Bank Community Room of the Harold Rogers Student Commons from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The Wanda Bolz Memorial Scholarship book sale is open to the public. Visitors will find a large array of books, from history to fiction novels, childrens books, cookbooks and much more. Magazines, cassette tapes, CDs, VHS/DVDs, audio books and more are also available. Paperback books are $1 each and hardback books are $2.

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 six years. In total, the sale has raised more than $7,000 for the scholarship.

With 34 years of service to the University of Kentucky and Somerset Community College, Wanda was all about helping students, said Bolzs husband, John Bolz.

The Wanda Bolz Memorial Scholarship awards a $1,000 scholarship per year to a non-traditional female Computer and Information Technologies (CIT) student with a sophomore standing.

The scholarship has been awarded to several students over the past few years and contributions may be made at any time. To donate books for the sale, contact Debbie Richardson in the SCC Learning Commons on the SCC Somerset North campus or Cathy Epperson in building three on the SCC Somerset South campus. Monetary contributions may be mailed 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.
