Ryan was born in Pittsburgh, and grew up in Dresher, PA. He studied Psychology, Theology and Theatre at Villanova University (Go Cats!) before joining the AVs as a Physical Education and Computer Teacher. Ryan entered this year because he believes that education is a key factor in dismantling racial oppression in the US. He is looking forward to dialoguing with his community about how God calls us to use our privilege to break cycles of oppression. Black Lives Matter.
I, Michael Ryan Henderson, commit myself to be an Augustinian Volunteer, to care for myself and my community as I walk alongside those I serve.
