Ryan Short

Ryan Short's Family

The Ryan Short Memorial Scholarship has been established in memory of Ryan Short. Ryan was a freshman at Grand Valley State University when he was killed by a drunk driver on July 29, 1995. It is ironic that Ryan was killed by a drunk driver when he had become a fierce advocate against drinking and drugs.

In order to continue Ryan’s work, his family wants to help others pursue a career in drug and alcohol rehabilitation and education. By seeing his work continue through the students awarded this scholarship, Ryan’s family can find comfort and peace.
