The Schneller Sisters
Through their generosity, the three Schneller sisters – Cecelia Schneller ’27 Mueller, Adlynn Schneller Balfanz, and Mary Schneller ’33 Rosar – leave a lasting legacy at North Central College. Their extraordinary gifts belie their humble roots.
They were born to George and Clara Schneller in the early 1900s and were raised on the family farm near Sauk City. Their maternal grandmother, August Hasheider, was a First-Year student when North-Western College, later named North Central College, opened its doors in Naperville in 1870.
A component of their generous endowment supports the Schneller Sisters Scholarship.
