AddySTRONG Scholarship Fund established

| July 8, 2013

COSHOCTON – The AddySTRONG Scholarship Fund has been established at the Coshocton Foundation by Pat and Stephanie Snyder, in honor and memory of their daughter Addy Anne, who died earlier this year at the age of eight months.

A groundswell of support for Addy and her family grew in the months before she passed away. Known as “AddySTRONG,” friends and family of the Snyders demonstrated their caring through fundraisers and wearing T-shirts proclaiming “AddySTRONG.”

The scholarship, which will be a minimum of $500, will be awarded for the first time in 2014. Eligible applicants will be graduating seniors from River View High School who plan a career in any aspect of the medical or health care field.

Donations which were previously received in Addy’s memory to the River View Schools Fund of the Coshocton Foundation have been transferred to the AddySTRONG Scholarship Fund, with the approval of the River View Schools Fund advisors.

Tax-deductible contributions to the AddySTRONG Scholarship Fund may be sent to the Coshocton Foundation, P.O. Box 55, Coshocton, OH43812, with a note that they should be applied to the AddySTRONG Fund.
