The family of Scott Ryland was recognized recently at the University of Alabama at Birmingham's SHRP Scholarship Awards Luncheon held in the Alys Robinson Stephens Performing Arts Center.
Ryland, a Brewton native, was a graduate of the Master of Science in Health Administration (MSHA) Program and a candidate in the doctoral program in health administration at the University of Alabama at Birmingham at the time of his death in May 2003 at the age of 33. He has been memorialized by family and friends through the establishment of the Scott Ryland Memorial Endowed Scholarship for the MSHA Program. The scholarship will serve as a lasting tribute to Scott's memory and will be available in perpetuity to assist deserving students who share his desire for furthering their education in health administration. The first Ryland scholarship will be awarded this fall.
Ryland was the son of Helen Ryland and the late Henry Ryland.
