Police Officer Harry R. Ryman Memorial

The Ryman Family is once again raising money for the Police Officers of the NYPD through THE POLICE OFFICER HARRY R. RYMAN MEMORIAL.
This is a charity to honor Police Officer Harry R. Ryman who was killed in the line of duty on August 14, 1980 while in the process of stopping three men from robbing a car. He loved being an officer with the NYPD and loved serving his community.
Harry served both his Country and his City. He served 8 years in the U.S. Navy, and was a NYC Police Officer for 17 years. He received 17 medals throughout his career and was a member of the 60 Precinct Anti-Crime division at the time of his death. He left behind a wife and 5 children. Harry’s strong love of family and community are the traits for which he is best remembered.
As I’m sure you can understand, Police Officers don’t take the job for the money and in as much, struggle with the finances associated with college education, not just for themselves but for their children. Our Dad, Police Officer Harry Ryman, held a strong belief in higher education and continued his own education at John Jay College while we were young. Raising five children on a Police Officers salary was difficult for our parents and education costs put an additional strain on an already tight budget. With this in mind, we created THE POLICE OFFICER HARRY R. RYMAN MEMORIAL.
Our goal in creating this memorial was to help ease some of the financial burden associated with continuing education for Police Officers and their dependents from the NYPD who will be attending an accredited university or college.
Most Police Officers can tell you that they do not take the job for the money. Most will also probably tell you that it can often be a thankless job but the desire to help others is what drives them. So Please, Help Us Help Them. 
The scholarships are funded by the generosity of private individuals and local businesses. Last year we were able to help Five Families, this year we are hoping to do more. No Donation is Too Small…  So Please, Help Us Help Them.
The scholarships will be given out once a year on or about August 14th.
The Police Officer Harry R. Ryman Memorial is a recognized 501 (C) (3) tax exempt charity (DLN:  100099007 / EIN:  27-1851739) and your donations are tax-deductible.
