Craig Ryan was a founding member of the NSU Black Alumni Alliance, having served as Treasurer and Vice President, and was an integral part of fundraising efforts to establish the NSU BAA Endowed Scholarship. He also served on the NSU Demons Unlimited Foundation Board of Directors (formerly NSU Athletic Association). Craig was an avid supporter of NSU athletics and his love for baseball fueled his enthusiasm to establish the Ryan Family Baseball Scholarship in 2019. After a courageous battle with Colorectal Cancer, our dear friend and NSU alum completed his journey in this life on Thursday, Sept. 24.
On Saturday, Oct. 17, the NSU BAA, Demons Unlimited Foundation and the gentlemen of Theta Delta will be hosting a celebration of life for Craig beginning at 11 a.m. Greek organizations, NSU alumni and other groups who loved Craig are invited to join us for Craig Ryan Day at the Collins Pavilion on the tailgating field.
In memory of our dear friend, please consider making contributions to the Ryan Family Baseball Scholarship by visiting www.nsudemons.com/craigryan or by calling Dr. Haley Blount-Taitano at 318-357-4278.
