People of Western - Ryan John Crain

Ryan is very involved as a student at Western Technical College. He is a member of the Men’s Basketball team, president of the Cavalier Athletic Volunteer Society, and a very motivated and successful student. He is currently enrolled in the ASLA program and plans to transfer to a four-year university to complete a Bachelor’s degree. Ryan is influenced by his connection to family and his heritage. His brother, Chris, is an important support system in his life and someone who played a significant role in instilling Ryan with a strong work ethic, sense of responsibility, and desire to do well academically. In addition to family influences, being on the basketball team and making friends at Western has contributed to Ryan’s personal development and college experience. “I only wanted to stay for a semester until I have the credits and grade point to transfer, but after having the experiences, meeting all these people, making friends, making the basketball team—I wanted to stay for another year.”
