Here’s a feel good story.

The Ed Snider (RIP) Youth Hockey Foundation gave $500k to Neumann University to support 100 scholarship years for freshman or transfer students who participated in the Snider Hockey program in their youth.

Part of the press release:

Snider Hockey President and CEO Scott Tharp presented the $500,000 check to Dr. Chris Domes, Neumann University president. Members of the foundation and university boards attended the presentation as did three Neumann ice hockey players who participated in the Snider Hockey program.

“This generous gift from Snider Hockey will ensure that dozens of young women and men have the opportunity to earn Neumann University degrees and launch their careers without student loan debt,” said Dr. Domes.

“Neumann’s Franciscan values — integrity, respect and excellence — also provide continuity with the ideals instilled by Snider Hockey.”

He added that Neumann is the fifth university, and the first Catholic college, to collaborate with the Snider Hockey scholarship program.

Both Snider Hockey and Give Back (a nonprofit created in 1999) are dedicated to help motivate young people to excel, despite financial and social challenges. Through a joint venture between these two organizations, the Goals & Assists Scholarship Fund was created to provide Snider Hockey participants with the opportunity to attend college.

Snider Hockey programs are free and provided for underserved children who do not otherwise have a chance to play the sport.

Francis Bernard Walmsley helped secure the grant for Neumann.

    I always rooted against Ed Snyder – sorry – Mr Snyder – like fat Andy – always had to follow their playbook and couldn’t adapt to change

      Nothing wrong with refusing to accept change and sticking to the playbook. We still think it’s 1950 and we aren’t about to change our mind.
      Root against us all you want. There is a dolt in Kansas that will neutralize your vote.

      Just kidding. The only thing Warren has to offer is eliminating student debt. We all know I don’t need that.

      MAGA!
