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 2018 Spring for the Arts Gala, PoconoArts will honor Suzanne’s wishes by awarding two $500 scholarships to Danielle Kunkle and Melissa Salvadeo for their continued studies. Danielle is a senior at Pocono Mountain East High School and plans to attend MICA (Maryland Institute College of Art) with a major in Graphic Design/Illustration. Melissa is a senior at Stroudsburg High School and plans to attend Moravian College with a major in Music Education and Viola Performance.
