Ryan Beckman is back in familiar territory.
The 1998 Grangeville High School graduate recently became the administrator of GHR.
“I grew up in these halls, running around here when my parents worked here,” he smiled. He is the son of Bob and Betty Beckman of Grangeville.
Beckman attended the University of Idaho where he studied human resources. He has lived in the Portland/Vancouver and Boise areas, and was offered a job by Advanced Health Care, which owns GHR.
“I have been involved in management and am now very excited to be back in this area and at this job,” he said. “It’s like family here.”
Beckman said he is impressed by the fact GHR is a family-centered facility.
“We’re a part of this community and we love to have people in here to visit our residents, volunteer and just see what we have going on,” he said.
Beckman is married to Amanda and they have two children: Malcom is 7 and Olivia is 3.
“I am glad to be able to let my kids have some of the same experiences I had growing up,” he said. “I have missed Grangeville. This literally is coming home.”
He said his wife grew up in an Air Force family, and they are both excited to make their home in Grangeville.
