Ryan McCarthy Holmes Golf Outing and Scholarship
Ryan was passionate about helping others, especially students. Over his years as an instructor and administrator, he was drawn to students who were the 'underdog' financially or socially He wanted to see them succeed in the face of adversity and would always be their biggest supporter during their high school years and beyond. He would pull them aside in the hallway, call them into his office and make sure they were on the right path to continuing their eduction after high school.
It is in that spirit that his family continues Ryan's mission, through community support, to assist students financially as they aspire to obtain their college degree!
In the six years that the scholarship has been supporting students, the amount of scholarships awarded and renewed is $33,000.
