The Schoemann Memorial Scholarship

The family of Sandy and Steve Schoemann established this scholarship in 2020. Sandy taught Spanish at Meadowdale High School for many years. Steve was also in the first class that graduated from Meadowdale High School in 1962. Sandy and Steve loved teaching and were committed to helping their students and fellow teachers. After long careers with the Dayton Public School district, Sandy and Steve both continued to substitute teach in the Miami Valley. Steve, a lifelong Daytonian, and Sandy, a Dayton transplant from Barberton, Ohio, were very active in the community during and after their teaching careers. Sandy and Steve were deeply loved by their family and friends, and had many hobbies and talents between the two of them, but their greatest legacy may be the long-lasting impact they had on students and families during their 60-plus combined years of teaching. This scholarship honors their memory and their deep devotion to education and to the Dayton region. Applicants must:

  • Be a graduating senior from Meadowdale High School
  • Be accepted to an accredited two-or four-year college, university or trade school
  • Preference will be given to students planning to earn a degree in Spanish, technology or education
  • Preference will be given to students who demonstrate financial need
