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.
