Since 2017, the Every Student Initiative (ESI) has provided free curricula-related visits to all K-8 Peoria Public Schools students, adding on East Peoria and many other public and private schools over the years. Snyder’s mother, Sally Page, was a founding member of the board of the museum’s predecessor, Lakeview Museum of Arts and Sciences.
