Ryan Mirkin Memorial Scholarship in Gerontology
The Ryan Mirkin Memorial Scholarship in Gerontology was established in 2010 in memory of Ryan Lee Mirkin, a Youngstown resident, 2005 Liberty High School graduate, and 2009 Ohio University graduate in healthcare administration and long-term care. Ryan’s respect and interest in the elderly led him to volunteer with seniors and dedicate his collegiate studies to gerontology. During his college career, he interned at Heritage Manor Retirement Community. His scholarship will benefit a student majoring in Gerontology who shares his dedication to improving the lives of the elderly.
