The Ryan Lee Memorial Scholarship Committee is proud to announce Alyssa Scheyd as the first recipient of the Ryan Lee Memorial Scholarship. Alyssa will be attending Lehigh University this fall, where she will play collegiate golf. Twice a captain of the 2011 State Champion Berlin High School team, Alyssa was recognized on the All-State team. She is also a member of the National Honor Society and volunteers her time at numerous community and charity events throughout the year.
The Ryan Lee Memorial Scholarship was formed in honor of Ryan Lee, who passed away this Spring. Ryan, a two-time past champion and Stan Trojanowski Northern Junior Committee member, was a member of the Long Island University Golf Team. The scholarship is intended for those young men and women wishing to play collegiate golf and who also portray the same honor and appreciation for the game of golf as Ryan.
Following a decorated career at Berlin High School on both the varsity golf team and varsity basketball team, Ryan continued his golf career at Long Island University. As a Division I collegiate golfer, Ryan embodied the most important traits of a successful person, both on and off the golf course. Ryan was persistent and determined, and always eager to learn. He never got angry on or off the course, and always showed the utmost respect for the game of golf. He garnered invaluable life lessons from his time as a collegiate golfer, and there is no doubt Ryan could have done anything in this world.
Congratulations again to Alyssa Scheyd, the 2011 Ryan Lee Memorial Scholarship Recipient.
