The Dunlap family recently awarded the fourth scholarship from the Ryan Hugh Dunlap Memorial Scholarship Fund. Dunlap’s family created a scholarship fund for students wishing to enter the fields of education and/or sports medicine. As a graduate of Great Bend High School, Barton Community College, and Southwestern College, Dunlap was tirelessly dedicated to his students and athletes. His lifework was as an athletic trainer and physical education teacher. He took pride in the camaraderie of team sports and watching his student’s succeed. With this scholarship, future students will be able to further their education in a similar field.
