Becca Ryan receives Aquinas scholarship

Becca Ryan was recently awarded the R. Paul Nelson full tuition scholarship offered by Aquinas College.

Based on high school grade point average and ACT scores, Becca was invited to the Aquinas campus to participate in the Spectrum Scholarship competition along with roughly 250 other students. The testing consisted of multiple choice, team dynamics and essay components. Becca finished fourth overall.

“I have had many positive experiences while meeting with future professors and admissions counselors,” Becca said. “The small size of the college creates a personable atmosphere that I want to be a part of. I know that the academics will challenge me and push me to become the best version of myself.”

Becca currently keeps herself busy as an active member of the Our Lady of Consolation Peer Ministry team, participating in many charitable causes, including working at North Kent Service Center, God’s Kitchen North, and a mission trip to New Orleans. Her other hobbies are running/exercise, spending more time with family, and being goofy with friends. She is a member of the National Honor Society. She looks forward to life on the Aquinas campus, particularly meeting new people and finding her niche in the work force. She currently plans to work toward a degree in psychology.

Becca’s proud parents are Mike and Patty Ryan of Rockford. Her siblings are Mike, Christopher and Jessica.
