addition to the scholarship, which is designated for a Washington
State resident, the chapter awarded a $750 International Grant to
Akane Takahashi, a second quarter Culinary Arts student who hails
from Hiroshima, Japan. Her goads include learning things she is
unable to learn in Japan, exploring new culinary arts fields, and
eventually opening her own restaurant.
The funds for this unique grant were generated at the chapter's annual meeting by a member's challenge to match donation and by an additional contribution. The monies were designated as unrestricted funds and help in the Seattle Community College Foundation to be used in an area of greatest student need at the Culinary Academy. Since Les Dames d'Escoffier is an international society, the chapter's scholarship committee and board saw the opportunity for a global approach to it's educational work.
