Greg Snodgrass was born and raised in Milwaukee, Wisc. He was an athlete throughout high school and college playing soccer, football, and tennis. Family and community service are important to Snodgrass, who has dedicated the last eight years to mentoring children throughout his local community. He was awarded the Big Brother of the Year Award in 2010-2011 for his efforts in Lubbock, Texas, where he also served as Director of the local Big Brothers and Big Sisters organization.

Snodgrass received a Bachelor of Science degree in Human Development and Family Studies from Texas Tech University, where he was awarded a full scholarship through the university’s Collegiate Recovery Community, which is part of its Center for the Study of Addiction and Recovery. He earned a Master’s Degree in Social Work with a concentration in Administrative Leadership from Texas State University, and has remained an active member in the Collegiate Recovery Community at Texas Tech University. He is currently working on his LCSW licensure through The University of Alabama. He dedicates most of his accomplishments to the support and mentorship of Dr. Kitty Harris, Dr. Tom Kimble, and George Comiskey, all of Texas Tech University for the impact they have made on his life and career.

Snodgrass is especially recognized for his dedication to service. In 2008, he was a recipient of the Service Award for Human Sciences at Texas Tech University for his efforts on campus. Snodgrass identifies service as an important aspect of recovery and has a background in working closely with many organizations, such as Habitat for Humanity. Service is, therefore, a crucial component of The University of Alabama’s Collegiate Recovery Community, and students are encouraged to volunteer in the surrounding Tuscaloosa community. With Snodgrass’s experience and passion for service, the Collegiate Recovery Community is destined to be a community association as well, providing service and involvement throughout Tuscaloosa and the surrounding area.

Snodgrass’s dedication to the recovery field is evident by his devotion to the Collegiate Recovery Community and the students involved. He is renowned for his speaking abilities and was asked to serve as a panel member for the Southeastern Collegiate Recovery Conference at Mississippi State University in May 2012. In addition, Snodgrass has traveled across the country to give presentations on the concept and goals of Collegiate Recovery Communities.
