Scheele, Wilson set to be honored
The YWCA of Hawaii Island named real estate executive Sharon Scheele and culinary specialist Audrey Wilson as its 2014 Remarkable People.
The pair will be honored during the Remarkable Person Luncheon from 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Hilo Hawaiian Hotel Moku Ola Room.
Scheele has lived in Hilo since 1969. Since 1972, she’s been involved in real estate; she and husband Al Inoue organized Inoue Hawaii Realty Corp. in 1978. She was the first woman president of the Hawaii Island Chamber of Commerce, and has had several other positions in the community, currently serving as president the Board of Junior Achievement of Hawaii Island.
Wilson was born and raised in Hilo. She retired as cold drink manager from Coca Cola Bottling Co. in Hilo and transformed her lifelong passion for food into a new vocation, including a catering business, AJ and Sons, with her son, Dean. Wilson headlines the weekly “Let’s Talk About Food” column in the Hawaii Tribune-Herald, is a guest contributor to the Food Network Magazine and published three cookbooks. She also is involved with several community organizations and is co-owner and baker for AJ’s Volcano Cottage and Studio.
Both women are past presidents of their Rotary Clubs. Learn more about them during the luncheon Wednesday
