“The privilege of working on the Thad Snodgrass Memorial Scholarship program has been one of the most rewarding of my career. When my good friend, the late Robert Johnson, Board Chairman 1993-2006, and I met one February evening 29 years ago to begin planning the establishment of the fund, little did we realize the height to which this program would rise. Thanks largely in part to the Sarah & Pauline Maier Foundation, this fund’s investment program will perpetually allow qualified high school seniors from Eastern Kanawha County begin their college education.”

Lloyd Calvert Board Chairman 1979-1993 (deceased)

“Receiving the Thad Snodgrass Memorial scholarship was a tremendous honor. It was a capstone to my high school experience, and aided me financially as I graduated to college and studied chemistry. To this day, I cherish the fact that I was part of a select group to receive this prestigious award that reflects academic success, extracurricular involvement, and personal character. These are qualities that I try to promote each day to my students and players.”

“Education is an investment in your future. Looking back, it is nice to know there was a school and a community who recognized and invested in my potential.”

"It was truly an honor to have received the Thad Snodgrass Memorial Scholarship when I graduated from Dupont High School in 1981. Thad was both a good friend and role model- a quiet pillar of strength He has been missed. The undeniable success of the Thad Snodgrass Memorial Scholarship Fund program is attributable to both the memory of Thad and the unparalleled community support for the higher education of graduating seniors"
