Danielle Snyder, our seventh and eighth-grade humanities teacher and girls basketball coach, has been awarded a Teacher & Librarian Scholarship to attend the Key West Literary Seminar, “Reading Between the Lines: Sports and Literature.” Ms. Snyder joins nineteen other teachers and librarians from ten different states who have been chosen to receive financial aid packages totaling more than $22,000 to attend the 38th annual event on January 9-12, 2020.

During their attendance at the Seminar, scholarship recipients will expand their professional network and be exposed to leading contemporary authors such as Megan Abbot, Buzz Bissinger, Daniel James Brown, Billy Collins, Joyce Carol Oates, Lionel Shriver, and Kevin Young.

Snyder, a native of California, majored in television, film, and media studies at Cal State LA, where she played women’s basketball. She has a master’s degree from Whittier College.

The Key West Literary Seminar Scholarship Program aims to nourish a vibrant literary culture by providing support to a diverse group of teachers, librarians, readers, and writers.
