Husband shares wife’s culinary passion (Sharon E. Anderson Culinary Arts Memorial Scholarship)
Though her Crohn’s disease kept her from pursuing a career in the culinary arts, Sharon E. Anderson was an avid cook all her life. She helped many family and friends by cooking, setting up, serving, and cleaning up many weddings, graduations, and anniversary celebrations. Every year at Christmas, people looked forward to her varied and generous cookie and candy trays.
Sharon passed away at 60 years old in 2018, after three years fighting rectal cancer. Mark Anderson established the Sharon E. Anderson Culinary Arts Memorial Scholarship to honor his late wife of 24 years.
The Scholarship benefits one culinary arts student from Mapleton High School (Sharon’s Alma Mater) and one culinary arts student from Ashland High School (Mark’s Alma Mater) each year.
