Distinguished Alumnus 2019
Dr. Izzy Risma
A Class of 1984 graduate, Dr. Risma was a standout student, athlete and musician at SHS. He volunteered with Young Life, in his community, and at summer camps regularly. Izzy went on to complete medical school at The Ohio State University College of Medicine and has practiced at UC Health for 22 years. He also gives his time to teaching future physicians, serving in the Special Needs ministry at Crossroads Community Church, and tutoring at-risk students in Over-The-Rhine. His proudest achievement, though, has been that he and his wife Kim (SHS '86) have raised their two sons, Eli and Sammy, who are currently seniors at Sycamore.
