The Leslee Niethammer Scholarship

The Leslee Neithammer scholarship was established in honor of Leslee Neithammer who died on March 11, 2016. Since SLI’s inception, Leslee, in addition to her responsibilities as the Director of The Saline District Library, was the person behind the scenes managing all of the administration for the program. She made sure the classes were well organized and presented each year. This need-based scholarship was established for individuals who may not have the financial resources to attend. Please indicate in the box on the application form if you are interested in applying.  THE DEADLINE TO APPLY IS NOVEMBER 1, 2022.
