Mark Neiswander was a loving father who grew up in the small town of Urbana, Ohio.
Throughout his life, the core values instilled by his family and community were his guiding North Star.
Ohio University's legendary "Most Exciting Band in the Land", known as The Ohio University Marching 110, captures the spirit of Mark and the 110% he gave to everything he did. Thus, the Mark Neiswander “110” Memorial Scholarship is a representation of his work ethic and the spirit of the Marching 110.
Mark had a strong love for his hometown and the close bonds that could only be formed through such a tightly knit community. Throughout his life, Mark believed in giving back to his community and helping others.
Mark had an immense passion for life and learning. This scholarship aims to support students from small towns in Ohio so they can pursue a college education.
Any high school senior or undergraduate student in Ohio who demonstrates leadership in school, volunteering experience, and/or academic excellence may apply.
