Snodgrass Scholarship - Alice Snodgrass
Alice (Mikami) Snodgrass was born Nov. 19, 1913. Education has been at the center of Mrs. Snodgrass’ life since she was a little girl. Both her parents attended university in their native Japan before immigrating to the United States, and they raised their children to pursue their intellectual interests. Following their parents’ example, the Mikami children attended the university in Fairbanks in the 1930s and 1940s. Alice married Roland Snodgrass, and the couple spent most their years together in the Matanuska Valley until Roland’s death in 1983. UAA’s Mat-Su College also has a scholarship in his name. In 1985, Mrs. Snodgrass received a Meritorious Service Award from the University of Alaska Anchorage’s Mat-Su College.
