A scholarship for Kingswood Regional High School students has been established for seniors pursuing culinary or hospitality college degree programs. This scholarship is in honor of Allen Stevens (1938-2012), whose family owned Point Breeze Resort on Lake Wenthworth and where he served as manager. The Allen Stevens Scholarship will be awarded once a year to a graduating student who has declared the Hospitality field as a college major. Established by friends of Allen Stevens, the Allen Stevens Scholarship aims to reward and encourage aspiring students interested in the culinary and hospitality industry.
Allen’s career in hospitality started when he studied hotel administration at Paul Smith College in New York. His industry experience was honed by a six year tenure as Director of Plymouth College food service in Plymouth, NH. After returning home to Wolfeboro, NH, he dedicated his life’s work to the management of Point Breeze as a resort and then as a condominium community.
Allen was an active contributor to the Wolfeboro community, serving as chair to dozens of committees, and donor to the preservation of many Wolfeboro landmarks. He was involved in community affairs and served as President of the Wolfeboro Area Chamber of Commerce and Lake Wentworth Association and Chairman for the Wolfeboro Zoning Board of Adjustment and Trac Rails Action Committee that constructed the Cotton Valley Trail. He was on the Wolfeboro Planning Board and on the special committee for parking, docks and special needs studies. He was the Tree Warden for the Town of Wolfeboro and served on the Board of Elections. Important for our lake, he was the keeper of the dam for many years, working to keep the lake level as required by law. Sometimes mother nature didn’t cooperate but he did his best to keep things right. He shared his enthusiasm for the lake with young and old and those he touched will always remember him.
