About Ryann Tewell

The event is held in memory of Ryann Tewell, Bellarmine Class of 2012. Ryann transferred to Bellarmine University her sophomore year and graduated magna cum laude in 2012 with degrees in economics and business administration. Ryann was a proud alumna along with the 18 other members of her family who call BU their alma mater. On a daily basis, Ryann demonstrated a tremendous work ethic, strong goal-orientation and an unwavering positive attitude. Ryann lived life modeling one of her favorite quotes from Maya Angelou – “People will forget what you said; people will forget what you did; but people will never forget how you made them feel.” Ryann will be long remembered for her infectious laugh, quick wit, sense of humor, beautiful smile, friendly and welcoming demeanor and desire to always be the very best version of herself.
