Cameron G. Scholderder Fund
The passing of long time team member and friend,Chaplin School alumnus, Cameron G. Scholderer, was a difficult time for the S&B Family. Cameron had a real creative flair behind the bar and became a sought-after mixologist in the South Florida community.
“Cameron made the best out of every situation,” said Cameron’s mom, Sally Scholderer, “He believed in what he was doing and worked very hard, but yet was a mentor to other kids coming up in the industry – and he always did it very selflessly. He really left an imprint on everyone he met.”
Sally and her husband, George Scholderer, established the Cameron G. Scholderer Fund, an endowment that will provide scholarships for students following in Cameron’s footsteps and pursuing a career in beverage management at the Chaplin School. Recipients of the scholarship will carry on the legacy of Cameron’s commitment to mentorship by becoming mentors themselves to each new recipient of the award, passing along Cameron’s story of hard work and determination.DONATE NOW!
