Suzan Jean Snyder Scholarship Fund

Established by Lois J. Rood, mother of the late Suzan Jean Snyder, who passed away in January of 2007 after a courageous battle with breast cancer. She was an inspiration to many, and her love of life and family kept her going.

Suzan was an avid gardener who loved to work with flowers. She formerly worked as an NEC Expo Services Customer Service Representative, as well as the proud co-owner of Art Craft Display NEC Expo Services and A.C. Development Co. Suzan was a devoted wife and mother, always putting her family first.

“This scholarship would be dedicated to one of the strongest fighters of this disease I know, my daughter, Suzan Jean Snyder. The students selected must be dedicated to their field of education, to help the world be a better place to live in, and in some way, challenge this disease or provide encouragement to those people that struggle with it daily.” — Lois J. Rood
