Andrew Lane Memorial Scholarship Established at Appalachian

BOONE – The memory of an Appalachian State University student killed in an automobile accident in Boone in March will live on thanks to contributions establishing the Andrew Lane Memorial Scholarship for Hospitality and Tourism Management.

An event celebrating Lane’s life was held June 16 at the home of Mr. and Mrs. James Hanes of Winston-Salem. By the end of the evening, more than $5,000 had been raised or pledged to the Lane Memorial Scholarship, bringing the endowment total to more than $15,000.

Lane was a junior at Appalachian at the time of his death and had planned to attend culinary school and pursue a career as a chef and professional caterer after graduation.

Lane’s passion for the hospitality industry began when he was a high school student working at the Golden Apple in Winston-Salem. While in Boone, Lane worked for Grouse Moor Catering.

The first Lane Memorial Scholarship will be awarded this fall to a student majoring in hospitality and tourism management.

Lane was the son of Sylvia Oberle and Michael Lane, and the stepson of Terry Oberle and Lucy Lane, all of Winston-Salem.
