Congratulations to Brendan Kelley for being awarded the 28th Annual T. Ragan Ryan Award for Excellence!
The award was established in 1990 by Emily and Thomas C. Ryan in memory of their son, T. Ragan Ryan ’91. The award is bestowed upon a junior or senior who “best exemplifies the spirit of humanism and excellence in premedical studies exemplified by Ragan Ryan”. The recipient is chosen by the Ryan family and Dr. Phil Johnson after reviewing nominees provided by the Health Professions Program at Middlebury College. Brendan joins a distinguished group of former recipients who have gone on to make significant contributions to the field of medicine. For a video highlighting all of the previous winners, click here.
