Erroll, Barbara and Carol Wendland
Erroll Wendland and his wife Barbara Cook Wendland established the Cook Endowment which funds scholarships for students in the fine arts. Erroll also endowed a scholarship to honor his parents. Most importantly, Mr. Wendland began the initial Leopard Loan program by providing emergency funding that the Foundation could use at their discretion to ensure that a student not drop out of school due to a temporary financial setback. The Wendland’s daughter Carol, has continued to support the programs her parents established.
