Meet 2026 - 2027 District Governor: Scott Ryan

Scott was accepted as a Rotarian on December 3, 2008.  He has held several roles in his club, particularly in the area of youth development, serving as Holmen Area Youth Exchange Officer and Holmen High School Interact Advisor. However, if you ask his friends when he “became” a Rotarian, it was four years later when he and members of the Holmen Area Rotary Club traveled to Peru to deliver bio-sand water filters to families living on an active garbage landfill and drinking contaminated water out of the Rimac River. For the cost of a good pair of shoes this filter could prevent disease and save lives for a family of nine. It was at that point Rotary opened his eyes and heart and empowered him to believe that a single person can make a difference with the dedicated support of 1.2 million members devoted to making a world better for everyone.

Another Rotary gift he has received is the confidence from District 6250 to serve as District Governor Nominee Elect and eventually as District Governor. When he is not doing something Rotary related, he owns and operates a family business selling manufactured homes and managing several manufactured home communities in the LaCrosse area. His family includes 3 adult children and his wife of over 33 years, Mary. In addition to any family event, the Ryan’s enjoy traveling anywhere in the world and sharing a meal or libation over a game of cards with friends and family.

Rotary has made him a better person, business owner, husband, father and friend. He is humbled and excited to be asked to serve in this leadership role for District 6250. Let’s make the world better…together!
