He went on to become a Bridger, Counselor, Department Head, Unit Head, and eventually the Assistant Director of Lanakila for eleven summers. In 2017, Ridge took the helm as Director and has continued to build and strengthen the program every day since.
Bryan received his BA from The College of Wooster, a master’s degree in Creative Writing from Dartmouth College, and his PhD in the Humanities from Union College.
