Ron Shurer Memorial Scholarship Donation

The Foundation of the USSSA is pleased to administer the Ron Shurer Memorial Scholarship.

Special Agent Ron Shurer was a man who lived a life of service. During his second deployment to Afghanistan with 3rd Special Forces Group, he was involved in the Battle of Shok Valley on April 6, 2008. Ron fought his way up a mountain to get to wounded teammates who had come under heavy enemy fire and provided medical treatment to many soldiers during the six-hour battle on the side of a sheer mountain.  For his heroic efforts that day, he received the Silver Star, which was upgraded in 2018 to the Medal of Honor. 

After leaving the military in 2009, Ron joined the United States Secret Service so he could continue to serve our country. Ron served as a Special Agent in the Phoenix Field Office before earning a spot on the Counter Assault Team, where he served from 2014 until he died due to cancer in 2020. He was survived by his wife and two young sons.

In honor of a humble man and dedicated colleague, a scholarship has been established in his memory to benefit all children of United States Secret Service employees who died while still employed by the USSS.
