Sterbenz-Ryan Scholarship Fund Richard G. Sterbenz and Martin J. Ryan, long-time residents of the St. Croix Valley, created the Sterbenz-Ryan Education Scholarship Fund as part of the Hudson Community Foundation, an affiliate of the St. Croix Valley Foundation. The mission of this Fund is to grant scholarships to students obtaining education beyond high school, in order to “give an opportunity to kids like them that need a break,” something neither Mr. Sterbenz nor Mr. Ryan were given when they were that age. Both Mr. Sterbenz and Mr. Ryan were born in Chicago and moved to Somerset in 1979. They were accomplished entrepreneurs and business owners for 40 years, founding Dalson Foods, real estate developments, Richmar, MR Convenience and Rich’s Eatery. Both had huge hearts and were generous donors to many local charitable organizations. Donations can be made in their memory to the Sterbenz-Ryan Scholarship Fund at the St. Croix Valley Foundation in Hudson, Wisconsin.
