Suzanne Anderson was a strong supporter of all the arts, but especially music, having served as president for many years of the Music Study Club and active in the Pocono Arts Council’s Youth in Music Excellence Awards. Upon her death in January, 2013, she included the Pocono Arts Council in her will to “establish a scholarship for a student majoring in the arts in college.“
At the 2019 Spring for the Arts event, PoconoArts will honor Suzanne’s wishes by awarding two $500 “Rising Star” scholarships to Rafael Fernandez and Kayla Patney to continue their continued studies. Rafael is a senior at East Stroudsburg South High School and plans to attend Susquehanna University. Kayla is a senior at Stroudsburg High School and plans to attend Kutztown University.
