Lobdell Culinary Scholarship Dinner

Lobdell's: A Teaching Restaurant once again hosted the annual Wayne and Terry Lobdell Culinary Scholarship Dinner on Thursday, September 12, 2019.

Now in its fifteenth year, the dinner event has awarded more than $110,000 in scholarships to local students.

“Providing scholarship funding for students at the Great Lakes Culinary Institute is a very rewarding experience for Terry and me,” Wayne Lobdell said. “I am well aware of the importance and need to continue to develop more people in the culinary field. The hospitality industry is stable and growing and has many opportunities for motivated and skilled culinary students. Terry and I enjoy receiving letters from those we have helped launch their careers through scholarships. These scholarships are made possible by the supporters who attend these scholarship dinners, and the dinners give us a chance to enjoy watching the students perform their skills.”
