Ryan Andrews grew up in Schaumburg and attended Dirksen, Hale and Mead schools in District 54. Ryan works as a financial adviser with Ameriprise Financial in Schaumburg, and has been on the Foundation Board since August 2013. He currently serves on the Foundation’s finance committee, and he also has served on the marketing committee and golf outing committee. Ryan got involved with the Foundation because he wanted to be a part of funding programs that improve students’ educational experience and better the community. He is particularly passionate about the Foundation’s new Food 4 Thought initiative, which is raising funds to provide breakfast programs for eligible students at all District 54 schools so that they begin their day ready to learn.
