Ryan Riesenberg, advised by Kristen Rasmussen, has been awarded the Liniger Honor, Service, and Commitment Scholarship. This scholarship is for a CSU student and veteran who has participated in combat operations and received a campaign medal for military service. There are also academic requirements. The scholarship was founded by David and Gail Liniger, who are the founders and owners of RE/MAX.

Ryan earned an Iraq Campaign Medal when he was deployed to Iraq with an Army Aviation Regiment. During his time in service, he also collected an Aerial Achievement Medal, Air Force Commendation Medal, Air Force Achievement Medal, Army Achievement Medal, Meritorious Unit Award, AF Outstanding Unit Award, National Defense Service Medal, Global War on Terrorism Expeditionary Medal, Global War on Terrorism Service Medal, Humanitarian Service Medal, AF Overseas Ribbon, Air Force Expeditionary Service Ribbon, AF Longevity Service, Small Arms Expert Marksmanship Ribbon (Pistol), and AF Training Ribbon.

Ryan thanked the Linigers for the scholarship and said, “It is an amazing privilege to receive this scholarship, and it is nothing shy of a miracle that people are willing to support veterans in this manner to allow veterans to continue their education after serving their country. It allows for their military experience, training and lessons learned to reach back into academia in order to enhance our country and keep America great.”
