Ryan Strong Memorial Fund (Ryan Tierney)

Ryan Tierney (1998-2018) was a student at Waterford Country School for numerous years. He enjoyed working with our animals, being a Jr. Camp Counselor and all of his interactions with students and staff. Ryan passed away after a yearlong battle with cancer. It was Ryan’s wish that in lieu of flowers, donations would be made to Waterford Country School for farm equipment and Camp Scholarships. Ryan loved his time on the farm and wanted students and staff to have all the necessary tools and equipment they need on the farm. Many of Ryan’s personal animals now live in the WCS farm and nature center. To honor Ryan’s wishes, please consider a donation of any amount.  #ryanstrong
