"The Neider Award has made it possible for me to fully immerse myself in my work, community, and JVC. Truthfully, it feels impossible to adequately express in words just how much you've positively impacted my life, as well as the lives of the people I serve." - Catherine Cunha '23

"I would like to express my immense gratitude for the SCU Alumni Association Neider Family Alumni Service Award. As I embark on my year as a Jesuit Volunteer in Mobile, Alabama, I feel lucky to have the support of the very generous Bronco family."  - Hannah Maryanski '15

"THANK YOU for all the SCU Alumni Board of Directors has done to ensure that Santa Clara alums continue to grow in love and compassion for others many years past their time at Santa Clara.  I feel incredibly grateful to have been one of the recipients of the Neider Family Alumni Service Award..."  - Maddie Regan '15
