Margaret C. Stednitz Scholarship

The Margaret C. Stednitz Scholarship was established in 1991. Margaret Stednitz was a well-remembered and cherished teacher. She grew up in Beaver Crossing, Nebraska, and graduated from UNL. She taught English and music in Curtis and Eagle, Nebraska, and later at Irving Junior High and Lincoln Northeast High School.
