This Thursday, Nov. 29, is the 21st annual Scholarship Dessert. It begins at 7 p.m. at the Eagle Point High School Cafeteria.
This year’s guest speaker will be Wendi (Bowles) Workinger. She is a product of District 9 education, having gone from kindergarten through 12th grade in District 9 schools. She attended Rogue Community College part-time from 1989-1991 and then transferred to Oregon Institute of Technology in Klamath Falls. In 1995, Wendi graduated from OIT with a bachelor of science degree in medical imaging.
Wendi went to work in the fall of 1995 at Sutter Coast Hospital in Crescent City where she started as a staff radiologic technologist. She was certified in mammography in 2002. In February of this year, she was promoted to the supervisor of 14 xray technologists and in December will be promoted to the administrator of the picture archive communication system.
She and Bart Workinger were married in 1995. They met while both were enrolled in the same program at OIT. They have two sons, Luke Michael, born in May 2004, and Kyle Ernest, born in November 2006.
Wendi is the daughter of Mike and Kathy Bowles of Eagle Point.
Musical entertainment will be provided by members of the  EPHS band under the direction of Tevya Robbins.
In its 20 years of fund raising, every cent raised has gone to the scholarship program. Nothing is spent on advertising or supplies.  Hostesses reserve a table or tables by calling Olive Lansburgh at 826-4534. The hostess invites her guests, supplies a dessert, place settings, linens and a centerpiece. Tables can be as fancy or as casual as the hostess wishes to make them. While  some bring fine china, others find Wall-Mart’s finest works very well.
Before the evening ends, hostesses provide guests with a donation envelope.
