This fund was established in 2015 in memory of Mary Jane Snyder and in honor of Roy Snyder. Mary Jane graduated from Alvernia College in 1975 at the age of 39. She went on to teach third grade at the Womelsdorf School in the Conrad Weiser School District for 27 years where she was a caring, creative, conscientious, highly respected, and much loved teacher.

Roy taught physical education, was athletic director, and coached swimming at Wilson High School for more than 50 years, leading the Bulldogs to many individual and team successes.

A scholarship will be awarded to a senior graduating from Wilson High School who will be furthering his or her education after high school and who has been a member of the Wilson High School swim team or dive team, with a preference to students who will continue to participate in an aqua sport in college. Preference will also be given to seniors who participated on the swim team or dive team for four years and to students who were previously members of Wilson’s Age Group Swimming & Diving for at least two years. This recipient displays qualities of hard work, self-discipline and leadership.

To be considered for this scholarship, apply between January 15th and March 15th. All applicants will be notified in May.
