Dora J. Geeter Memorial Culinary Arts Annual Scholarship

Dora was the third eldest child of fourteen born to Rosie & Samuel Geeter. She was extremely creative and loved to cook and bake. Her specialty was creating delicious cakes, which she would sell along with other yummy goodies. Her family and friends established this scholarship in hopes of giving another aspiring bakery chef the opportunity to share their culinary creations with others, as well as honoring Dora’s memory.
