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…)
1952Jack started teaching at UNL…. $52.00
1961Jack began leading the UNL: Marching Band…$61.00
1962Jack took the marching band to the Gotham Bowl…$62.00
