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!”

I live in Seattle and wanted to find some one in the south end to send flowers to my sister in law who has had 4 deaths in the last 9 months. I was searching on line, looking for some one that had a good sense of style and artistic flair not your usual cookie-cutter bouquet.
After scrolling page by page by pure chance I found Flowers by Robin. As soon as I saw the photos of her work I knew she was my gal! Her gift to make beauty using the natural elements of nature, was a rare find and just what I was looking for plus, the added bonus was that she was in my price range. I spoke to Robin, myself on the phone gave her my thoughts of what I was attempting to do and told her from her photos I totally trusted her style and flair. Robin has a gift and it reflects in all her work. The home she was delivering them to has a very aggressive dog that I pre-warned Robin about. She was kind enough to hand-deliver them herself. I revived a text from my sister in law saying this " Thank you for your thoughtfulness and the beautiful flowers. The colors brighten my day and put a smile on my face. That was so sweet of you!
OXOXOX " Bingo! Thank you Robin for your beautiful work together we hit a home run!
