Today we remember the life of Thomas College Trustee H. Allen Ryan H’08. Allen passed away September 21, 2019, after a long battle with cancer. He was a beloved member of the Board, sharing immense wisdom and encouragement over his 25-year tenure. Allen and his wife Dianne were also incredibly generous, helping to build the H. Allen Ryan Baseball Field, the H. Allen and Dianne Ryan Field House in the Alfond Athletic Center, and the H. Allen Ryan School of Business in the Alfond Academic Center. Through their endowed scholarship fund, they have helped students attend and graduate from Thomas more affordably – and will continue to support them in perpetuity.
Allen was especially instrumental in the growth of alumni relations efforts at the College, noting again and again how important Thomas graduates are to the spirit and longevity of the College.
His impact was felt throughout central Maine and beyond. Read about Allen’s life and legacy in this article from the Morning Sentinel: http://bit.ly/2llIevK
