Music and The Arts Scholarships

A 2015 graduate of Riverside High School, Ian Minnick was a skilled musician and creative thinker, pursuing a degree in Digital Media Production until his death at age 22. Established in 2019, these scholarships honor Ian by continuing to inspire students in their musical or artistic pursuits.

Ian's Legacy awards the Ian Minnick Memorial Scholarship to a talented musician or other creative artist graduate from Riverside High School. 


The foundation also awards summer scholarships to Riverside Local School District students entering kindergarten through 12th grade for camps, lessons and classes in music and the arts. The Riverside Local Excellence for Education Foundation (RLEEF) sponsors and acts as the fiscal agent for Ian's Legacy scholarships.
