Sarah Ryan

Sarah Ryan, an alumna of Stephen F. Austin State University’s James I. Perkins College of Education, recently returned to campus to speak to nutrition and dietetics students in the School of Human Sciences. Ryan, who graduated in 2012 with a bachelor's degree in food and nutrition and again in 2013 with a master’s degree in human sciences, is now president of the Texas Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. As an SFA undergraduate, she served as a student regent. “We were thrilled to have her as a guest speaker,” said Justin Pelham, SFA food, nutrition and dietetics clinical instructor. “Sarah has conveyed great compassion, energy and an optimistic personality for making a positive impact in the dietetic profession, both as a student and as a professional.”
