The Sandi Sutton-Wasmund Memorial Scholarship
The Greater Maple Valley-Black Diamond Chamber of Commerce presents this scholarship in memory of Sandi Sutton Wasmund, a 1982 Tahoma High School graduate, who became a community and business leader in Maple Valley.
Sandi loved her family, supported education, advocated for local businesses and gave back generously to her community through service and leadership.
Sandi believed in hard work, integrity and ingenuity. She valued people who did the best they could and was always willing to offer a hand to those who were struggling.
Sandi’s untimely death has inspired others to keep her spirit alive by encouraging and assisting young people with values and goals similar to hers. When Sandi decided to get involved in something, she brought a “can-do” attitude, enthusiasm and total commitment to achieving her goal.
She was a leader who was always willing to work collaboratively with others, and also embraced the notion of take it, leave it, or change it. Sandi was proud of her community and worked tirelessly to make it a better place.
Sandi's family personally chose the scholarship recipients; their applications touched their hearts in some way. Due to the generosity of many of our members, and the scholarship sponsors, All Service Plumbing & Contracting and Junior Junction Day School, we are able to award $1,000 scholarships to Tahoma High School graduating seniors.
We think that all our scholarship recipients have what it takes to pursue their dreams with the vigor and joy that Sandi possessed. We think Sandi would be pleased with your accomplishments so far and very excited about your future plans. Congratulations!”

Rise & Shine is an annual fundraiser bringing together artists, community members, collectors, donors, and friends to celebrate MVCAC's mission to promote and appreciate the arts in our community and schools.
Silent and Live Auctions, Holiday Shopping, Make-A-Gift, Breakfast, AND SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL ARTS! We can't think of a better way to wake up on a crisp December Saturday morning. Can you?
Start things off with coffee and perusing the Silent Auction from 8:30 to 9:00 am. While fueling for the day with a scrumptious breakfast from 9:00 to 10:00, we'll have a small Live Auction. The Silent Auction will continue after the Breakfast, during which time you'll also be able to shop this year's Bazaar for original art and holiday gifts - or stop by one of our local vendors and artists who are offering an on-site Make-A-Gift opportunity for around $10.00 each.
Tickets are only $25.00 each and children 12 and under eat FREE! All proceeds (except for the Make-A-Gift) benefit Maple Valley Creative Arts Council. TICKETS MUST BE PURCHASED IN ADVANCE!
