Legacy scholarship winners named

Jazon Snell
Jazon Snell will begin studies at RIT this fall.
The winner of the 2006 RIT Alumni Legacy Scholarship is Jason Snell from Medina, N.Y. He is the son of Linda Snell ’80 (business administration).

Snell, a graduate of Medina High School, will be starting at RIT this fall, majoring in mechanical engineering technology. At Medina he was a student representative for Boys State, a National Honor Society member and captained the varsity lacrosse team.
“This award is a great privilege and honor to receive,” says Snell. “I look forward to attending RIT and being an asset to the student body. I know my mom is thrilled that I am going to RIT.”

The scholarship is available to children of RIT alumni and to RIT alumni themselves. The award is based upon the candidate’s financial need, leadership, and academic performance. The scholarship amount is $8,000, spread out over four years.

One-time awards of $500 from the Legacy Scholarship were also given to Christopher Rowoth, Daniel Orth, Justin Kozinn and Timothy Ipsaro.
