Congratulations to the Jack R. Snider Scholarship Winners

The Jack R. Snider Scholarship is awarded to members of the Cornhusker Marching Band who are non-music majors. Recipients demonstrate leadership (formal or informal), volunteerism and integrity. They are a role model for their section and the band, and exemplify what it means to be the Pride of All Nebraska.

Troy Scheer

My name is Troy Scheer and I’m from Gretna, NE. I’m in my fourth year here at UNL and I’m studying Nutrition Science with the hopes of attending nursing school in the next year. I was a member of the Cornhusker Marching Band all four years at UNL and I was the Section Leader for the K-Rank my Junior and Senior years. If there’s one thing being a member of the CMB has taught me, it is that constant determination and passion will always keep me motivated to reach my goals in life.

Emma Fuller

I am a senior Elementary Education major. This semester, I am student teaching in a 4th grade classroom. I look forward to continuing my career in the field of education after graduating this spring! I was the 2021 Cornhusker Marching Band Flagline Captain. I loved the opportunity to be on the field again and perform for Husker fans! I benefited greatly from my time in the band by learning leadership skills and time management, and by making lifelong friends. Go Big Red!

The Jack R. Snider Freshman Scholarship, created in 2020, is presented to a freshman band member based on the student’s financial need.

Abraham Cervantes Garcia, freshman

Going into University I knew that I wanted to join the Cornhusker Marching Band because I knew that it would greatly enrich my experience. Being a commuter student makes it hard to meet new people on campus so by getting involved I knew that I would be able to meet others with similar interests. Once I made it into the marching band, I found that everyone was very kind and that there was a strong sense of community between members and faculty. Becoming a member of the marching band allowed me to meet and learn from so many people and that is something that I will always be grateful for.

Congratulations to our Jack R. Snider Scholarship Recipients

Even with the fall reunion postponement, the Band Alumni Association continues as a year-round organization supporting the University of Nebraska–Lincoln Band Program. The Jack Snider Alumni Band Association Fund and the Don Lentz Memorial Fund continue to support scholarships, commissions, and guest artist appearances.

Because of your generous support, we are very pleased to announce the new Jack R. Snider Freshman Band Scholarship! This is presented to a freshman band member based on the student’s financial need. As you may or may not know, Jack and Mary Alice helped many band “kids” over the years who needed an occasional financial boost. I know they would be very proud of this new scholarship.

As you consider renewing your UNL Band Alumni Association membership, please visit the “donations” section and support your UNL band program. Your donation makes a positive impact on deserving band students as well as the entire UNL band program!

Morgan Delaplane

Hello, my name is Morgan Delaplane, and I am a freshman this year. I am majoring in music education, and my instrument is the trombone! For marching band I play the baritone, which is a fun experience. I am from Kimball Nebraska, which is about five hours away. I live on a farm with my mom, where we raise goats, horses, chickens, dogs, and many more animals! My hobbies are cooking, baking, crafts, and outdoor activities. Being here at UNL is such an amazing experience! For being a big campus, I still get the small town feel. I am honored to work with the professors here, and be a part of the Nebraska marching band! I look forward to what my future holds here at UNL.

Glenna Fulitano and Brianna Juma, recipients of the annual Jack R. Snider Scholarship

Glenna Fulitano
Glenna Fulitano

Glenna Fulitano is a rank leader of the CMB Flagline and plays Euphonium. She is a junior majoring in Elementary Education with a minor in International Studies. Glenna comes from Southridge High School in Beaverton, Oregon. Glenna is this year’s Kappa Kappa Psi Epsilon Omega Chapter and the District Vice President.

I always knew that I wanted to go to a state school in the Midwest.  The University of Nebraska–Lincoln turned out to have everything that I wanted: A great elementary education program, a marching band with a flagline, and A location that gave opportunities to be close to my extended family. 

I hope to move somewhere new after graduation and start teaching right away.  I want to travel around the country and experience teaching in other places.

I had never been to a college football game before my first game as a member of the CMB.  Only my first game was not really a game.  My first game was the rainout game in 2018.  It ended up being more fun than I would have thought for a cancelled game.  This was when I really knew that the band was just one big family as we sat under the stadium for hours.

My favorite memories in band are the away game trips.  The bus rides, although painfully long, are where I met some of my closest friends and really found my home within the band.  

As an out of state student, this scholarship will help me to meet the higher tuition costs to continue my experience at UNL.  Going to school at UNL and being in the CMB are experiences that I wouldn’t trade for the world and I can not wait to see what these next two years bring.  

Brianna Juma
Brianna Juma

My name is Brianna Juma; I am from Omaha, Nebraska and graduated from Millard West High School. I’m a senior trumpet player and current section leader in the CMB, and I’m studying Nutrition Health Sciences (Dietetics option) with minors in Music and International Studies. I was originally drawn to UNL because of their dietetics program and the marching band, but it has proved to be so much more than that. UNL, especially the CMB, has provided an unwavering sense of community for me the past four years. I’ve grown personally and academically, while making some of my best friends and memories along the way. I’ll never forget my first pregame performance in Memorial Stadium — it was exhilarating to represent the tradition of our university while performing in front of 90,000 people. Though we won’t get to experience this in 2020, I’ve enjoyed spending time with my band friends, along with welcoming and teaching the new members as the trumpet section leader. 

After I graduate from the university in May, I plan to attend graduate school to receive a Master’s in Public Health with a focus in nutrition, while also completing rotations to become a Registered Dietitian. This scholarship is not only supporting me academically this year, but it is allowing me to save money for grad school going forward. I am honored to receive a special award like the Jack R. Snider Band Alumni Association Scholarship!
