About the Scholarship

The Jody A. Schneztler Memorial Scholarship fund, established by Jody's family, was made to honor her memory and passion for art. Jody taught art for 25 years, with her last, many years being at Ithaca Public Schools. Through teaching art, Jody was able to use her passion to teach students a form of expression and communication. Some of Judy's past students are now professional artists and countless others of her students now have an appreciation for the arts. This scholarship will aid graduating Ithaca seniors in their journey of education and the Arts, allowing Judy to live on through her students and everyone they inspire too.
