Ryan Driscoll Memorial Scholarship Fund

Ryan Driscoll Memorial Scholarship Fund

Many of us have had a special person in our lives who seems to be bigger than life itself. They effortlessly make everyone feel at home – discomfort disappears when they are around. They create opportunities for others that would not have occurred otherwise.

Ryan Driscoll embodied these ideals and more and lived them every day. Ryan was a three-sport athlete at Linn-Mar from 1988-1992, before attending the University of Iowa where he played quarterback. Even as the quarterback at the University of Iowa, he made time for everyone that came into his orbit. It wasn’t the fact that he was a great athlete, it was the fact that he celebrated and embraced everyone for who they were.

For those of you who may not know, Ryan passed away on December 5, 2018. His passing was a shock to all who knew him and those that didn’t. While he never expressed any grandiose plan for his life, he lived what he valued every day. Anyone who spent time with Ryan felt special and he made everyone around him better people without saying a great deal.

We need to celebrate those who bring us together to experience and appreciate the best in everyone. We wish to honor Ryan’s spirit by celebrating those individuals that embrace everyone around them for who they are. As such, with the blessing of Kerry (Ryan’s wife), Theresa (Ryan’s mom), Beth (Ryan’s sister), and Dan (Ryan’s brother), we are working to create a scholarship to celebrate those individuals who make everyone feel at home. Our hope is that we as a community can come together to honor Ryan’s legacy by helping those who internalize Ryan’s values.
