James “Jim” J. Schneider retired from the Marshall University Joan C. Edwards
School of Medicine in June, but his service to the school will live on through
the creation of an endowed scholarship in his name.
The scholarship, known as the James “Jim” J. Schneider Endowed Scholarship, will be awarded to an entering first-year student chosen by the School of Medicine scholarship committee in conjunction with the Financial Aid office.
“Jim was a steady and effective leader during the School of Medicine’s expansion to the Marshall University Medical Center in the 1990s,” said Linda Holmes, director of development and alumni affairs with the School of Medicine. “He also guided several other multi-million dollar School of Medicine building projects. The formation of this scholarship is quite fitting because of Jim’s commitment to our students for so many years.”
Schneider served the School of Medicine and University Physicians & Surgeons Inc., for 21 years, finishing his career as the senior associate dean for finance and administration and executive director, respectively.
Anyone wanting to make a gift to the Schneider scholarship may contact Holmes by phone at ext. 304-691-1711 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
