Magic City Kiwanis/Esther Ryan Endowment Shoe Fund

Ray E. Leach

Esther Ryan is remembered by this community for her compassion and her career as a nurse at Barberton City Schools. After witnessing children coming to school with inadequate footwear, she took it upon herself to provide shoes to the students through a charity run out of the trunk of her car. She eventually partnered the Esther Ryan Shoe Fund with the Magic City Kiwanis, which continues her effort.
