Ryan Wilcox Memorial Scholarship

$3,690 of $19,000 goal

Raised by 63 people in 26 months
Today, March 3, 2017, would have been Ryan's 19th birthday.  To honor a hero to so many, and a legacy of strength and inspiration to Grossmont High School students, we're thankful and excited to launch the Ryan Wilcox Memorial Scholarship Fund.  The funds will be managed by the Grossmont High School Educational Foundation.

Our goal is to raise $19,000.  It would be an amazing tribute to have members of our community come together and donate $19 (or $190? or $1,900?)  to help us meet this goal and honor Ryan's birthday. 

Reaching this goal will allow us to award at least two $1,000 scholarships annually for a number of years to come.  This scholarship will provide help for individuals who have overcome their own personal obstacles - financially, emotionally, or physically - yet have still kept a positive outlook throughout their challenges.  They'll also have a love for Grossmont High School - the community and school spirit that Ryan so treasured.

Thank you so much for your support! 

"Ryan showed incredible strength and courage during his long and valiant battle with cancer.  His strong passion for life and the ability to smile in the face of adversity touched the hearts and changed the lives of so many.  We are so proud and honored that Ryan's memory and sweet spirit  will live on  at Grossmont through these very special scholarships. To be able to give back, each year, to the students who meant so much to Ryan, means everything to us. The love they shared and the joy it brought him, is something we will never forget and will forever cherish. Together, they inspired an entire community with a powerful message of strength, resilience, and love.  Ryan loved his Grossmont family and his positive attitude, perseverance, kindness and compassion for others exemplified the true meaning of why "it's great to be young and a Foothiller".
Together we are forever RyanStrong
