Ryan Meegan Memorial Scholarships
Amount(s): $1,000 to one male and one female RHS Soccer player for 2019
Ryan Meegan lived his life to the fullest. One of his greatest passions was the game of soccer which he began playing at the tender age of six at the Soccer Club of Ridgefield (SCOR). Playing on the SCOR Travel team through his U14 season, Ryan brought his enthusiasm for the game and his love for his teammates to every match he played. Along the way, he not only learned how to play the game the right way technically, he learned what it meant to be a good friend and teammate on and off the field. At SCOR, Ryan learned firsthand about working hard, as a team, towards a common goal - his early soccer experiences offered him many opportunities to exert his innate leadership skills which he leveraged as he matured into a young adult.
At Ridgefield High School (RHS), Ryan played on the freshman and JV teams that went undefeated. The friendships and comradery developed in those first two years formed the foundation for the success the team would experience in the next two seasons. As a junior, Ryan helped lead the team to its first FCIAC championship in several years. The following year, as a senior, Ryan helped lead the team to it's fourth State championship. As significant and exciting as these accomplishments were, the true value of Ryan's RHS soccer experience was the life lessons he learned about teamwork, dedication, commitment, focus, tenacity, respect and leadership - traits that Ryan exhibited both on and off the field.
The SCOR Ryan Meegan Scholarship Fund will be presented to a male and female senior RHS soccer player who best exhibits Ryan's passion for the game, leadership on the field and in the classroom, and respect for teammates, coaches and opponents as determined by the varisty coaches.
