Today (July 24) would have been Jack’s 99th birthday!
One way we’re celebrating is by announcing a 3rd scholarship: “The Jack R. Snider Freshman Band Scholarship”. This will be in the amount of $750.00 based on a student’s financial need. And, thanks to your donations, we have also been able to increase the two established marching band awards to $750.00 each.
However, we need your help to keep these scholarships supported through your continued generosity.
Please take a moment or two and make a donation. Any amount is welcomed and appreciated. But, if you need some help deciding on an amount, consider one of the following “suggestions”:
|7/24/1921||The day Jack was born…so $7.00, $24.00 or $19.00 or $21.00 (or $1,921…)|
|1952||Jack started teaching at UNL…. $52.00|
|1961||Jack began leading the UNL: Marching Band…$61.00|
