Amuse Bouche Culinary Scholarship

The Amuse Bouche Culinary Scholarship was established in 2020 by Kevin and Diane Klein. Kevin grew up in Lancaster county and Diane in Saunders county. Diane’s first college degree was an Associate’s from Southeast Community College in Culinary Arts and Restaurant Management. During the COVID-19 pandemic, many restaurants and employees suffered heavy losses. These establishments are vital to our communities and state as they serve many patrons for a place to gather, celebrate, mourn and connect. This scholarship was born to encourage the trade of cooking amazing food to keep our community and people connected, in good times and in bad.
