Educational & Professional Accomplishments

Spreading Smiles

President Ryan and University Building Official Ben Hays both competed in the Boston Marathon earlier this month. Ryan ran in support of the UVA Veteran Student Center, raising more than $16,000. Fifty-four donors gave at least $260, which allowed them to have the names of veterans of their choice appear on the back of Ryan’s tank top – including UVA Facilities Management Veterans.
