Ryan Zorn Memorial Scholarship

Ryan Zorn

The Ryan Zorn Memorial Scholarship was created to honor a champion soldier and a dear friend. Ryan Lee Zorn served in the United States Army from 1994 until November 16, 2009, when he was killed in Iraq. Staff Sergeant Zorn exemplified courage, service to his community and country, humility and strength of character. Ryan had a strong faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, and spoke openly about this faith.

This scholarship fund is intended to inspire youth to become strong, purpose-driven people, who live their lives with the same strength that Ryan Zorn exemplified during his lifetime.

This memorial will provide an annual scholarship to graduates of Upton High School (Upton, WY).

We are asking people to make a donation equivalent to giving up a mere latte per month for 12 months for the sacrifice that Ryan made for each of us. Pick your donation size and your account will be debited that amount of money once a month for 12 months.
