Ron Yarusavage Scholarship
Established August, 19, 2006
By Mark Linehan
The Ronald Yarusavage Scholarship was established in memory of Ronald Yarusavage, an English teacher at Woodbury and Nonnewaug High Schools for over 30 years.
The scholarship was first organized by fellow teachers, friends and family in memory of Ron's great commitment and dedication to education. He was a beloved member of the faculty and an outstanding teacher who was best known for his love of the classroom as well as his great sense of humor. Ron was an avid and accomplished golfer and a friend to many.
Ron would be
very pleased to know that a scholarship in his name
has been established to help a deserving student to
further their education. It should also be noted that
the Woodbury Scholarship Fund was instrumental and
indispensable in promoting and supporting the
establishment of this scholarship.
