Ian's Legacy Summer Scholarship
Ian’s Legacy offers scholarships to students entering kindergarten thru 12th grade to attend camps, take classes or lessons for music or in the creative arts during the summer months. The scholarship amounts and number of awards granted will vary depending on the cost of the camps, classes or lessons and the number of applicants each year.

The Ian's Legacy Summer Scholarship was established in 2019 in loving memory of Ian Minnick. Ian was a 2015 graduate of Riverside High School and attended Kent State University studying Digital Media Production, focusing on sound.

Ian was a percussionist in the Symphonic Band, the Percussion and Squad Leader on snare drum in the Riverside Regiment, in the pep band, and the pit band for various musicals. Ian was the recipient of the Regiment Best in Class and Best Male Musician as voted on by the Regiment for multiple years. Ian was also the recipient of the John Phillips Sousa Award and the U.S. Marines' "Semper Fidelis" Award for Musical Excellence his senior year. His high school senior project was to perform and record each drum cadence for future Regiment Drumlines to hear and learn.

Outside of school, Ian took voice, guitar, piano and percussion lessons and participated in the Riverside Community Talent Show and Pfabe’s Rock School for many years. For multiple years, Ian attended a Recording Camp at Bowling Green State University’s Summer Music Institute. While a high school student and as a student at Kent State University, he participated in various movies by acting, filming and as a sound technician.

Ian was the guitarist in Chil, an alternative rock band based in Stow, for nine years. He collaborated with his band writing music and lyrics, recording music videos, designing logos and maintaining their online presence. They recorded many original songs and ultimately recorded their last EP with Ian at the historical Motor Museum in Liverpool, England.

Ian had been a 6th grade camp counselor and a high school band ambassador for middle school students. Ian taught guitar and percussion to many Riverside students and returned to Band Camp each year to help teach the drum line. By being involved with younger students in these ways, he has had a lasting impact even after graduating from Riverside. These scholarships are to continue Ian’s Legacy by inspiring others to follow their passions and express themselves in the creative arts.
