The Ron Iverson Scholarship was established in 2015 by the family of Ron Iverson, who taught at Central Middle School in Eden Prairie for many years.
Ron lived to inspire his students’ love of learning. He took particular joy in those times when he could help students thrive in school while overcoming challenges outside the classroom.
