Automotive Technology Scholarship Opportunities

Jim Schnaible Memorial Scholarship

Description: This scholarship was established in 2021 to honor the life of Jim Schnaible and to continue his legacy of supporting automotive education.  Jim was an instructor for the Automotive Technology Program at Western Dakota Tech (WDT) for 34 years. He retired in 2004.  During his tenure at WDT, Jim had 434 students graduate from the program.  While Jim’s passion was teaching, he was much more than a teacher to those students. He was often a counselor, mentor and friend – guiding many of his students through challenging times and teaching life lessons with a joke and a smile. 

The Jim Schnaible Memorial Scholarship is funded by Weston and Tenise Chapman of Black Hills Tire.
