Ryan in Spain - Intro

Meet Ryan Leach, a veteran day student who was a recipient of our SHSS Study Abroad Award. Ryan is traveling with his wife and daughter to Spain with the Citadel's program.

This won't be Ryan's first trip abroad, he spent his childhood traveling the world as an Air Force dependent, visiting many different states as well as Korea and Germany. After graduating high school he enlisted in the US Army where he served 6 years as a Military Police Soldier assigned to the 1st Cavalry Division and was deployed to Iraq for a total of 27 months, first serving as a Protective Service Agent and later as a adjunct position with Blackhawk Troop 1-7 Cav.

After a few years in the Pacific Northwest, Ryan moved his family down to Charleston and enrolled at The Citadel. He  is an Honors Student with a double major in Political Science and Social Studies Education, and is also pursuing a minor in Southern Studies.

We look forward to seeing his travels with his family in Spain!
