Future generation of business leaders are benefitting from the legacy of the late Murray Ryan, longtime elected official and Western New Mexico University alum, through a University Foundation scholarship in his name.

Ryan passed away on January 7 at the age of 94. He attended WNMU when it was known as New Mexico State Teacher’s College prior to his graduating form West Point in 1945. He served in the U.S. Army until 1949.

Ryan became an advocate and leader for the southwest region of the state as a representative in the New Mexico State Legislature from 1969 through 1998. He often supported WNMU through education funding including the renovation of Watts Hall, the Fine Arts Center Theatre and the expansion of the Miller Library.

In 1998, Ryan was recognized by WNMU with an honorary degree and from 2001 to 2009 he served as a member of the University Foundation Board of Directors.

The Murray Ryan Scholarship is designated to students at WNMU who are seeking degrees in business. Contributions to the scholarship can be made by contacting the University Foundation at 575-538-6310. Foundation offices are located in Hunter Hall on 10th Street.
