ABOUT THE STEPHEN MICHAEL SULES SCHOLARSHIP

Our son, Stephen loved working with his hands and when he discovered Culinary Arts a whole new world opened up for him. Stephen became a confident young man, eager to learn showing tremendous passion for this craft and a focus that we had never seen before. Becoming a Chef gave Stephen the ability and opportunity to express himself freely where thinking outside of the box is encouraged.

When Stephen passed so suddenly family and friends asked what could they do for us. We asked them to please consider making a donation to the ICC in Stephen’s name so his love for the Culinary Arts would live on, and the dreams he held close to his heart might one day become a reality through another student.

Through the generosity of our family and friends we are honored and proud to offer this scholarship with the ICC in our son’s name.

Sincerely,

Lorraine & Steve Sules
