Ryan Kerrigan launches Kerrigan's Korner at The Kellar School, the first school to have a Kerrigan's Korner

Since 2015, Ryan Kerrigan and his Blitz for the Better Foundation have opened eight Kerrigan’s Korners in Washington D.C. and Richmond, Virginia area hospitals. Kerrigan’s Korner provides patients and their family members access to electronics during hospital stays and ultimately serves as a source of entertainment, a portal for communication and a diversion during treatment and recovery.  

Tuesday was a special day as Ryan unveiled his ninth Kerrigan’s Korner at The Kellar School, which marks the first school to have a Kerrigan’s Korner. The Kerrigan’s Korner was made possible by the generous support of Sandy Spring Bank.  

The Kellar School is a therapeutic education program serving students grades 3 through 12 who have been identified as eligible for special education services. Students at The Kellar School may have social, behavioral or health-related issues that interfere with their ability to learn. Students are placed by their local school jurisdiction to attend The Kellar School.  

To fill a need in the community by providing a relaxing outlet and space for these students, Kerrigan’s Korner is designed with Washington Redskins colors and branded with images of Ryan playing football on the wall. Kerrigan’s Korner is also filled with iPads loaded with educational applications and a mobile iPad charging cart.   The iPads with educational applications are important to students at The Kellar School because Kerrigan’s Korner will provide downtime for students on advanced levels to access an alternative, less structured reward with corresponding technology. The mobility of the tech allows for dual use opportunities for both social skills development, vocational training and differentiated reward opportunities even within the various school programs.  

“In the past, Kerrigan’s Korner has been viewed as a recreational tool for kids to use during their extended stay in the hospital. It is fulfilling to know that this Kerrigan’s Korner will not only be a recreational tool but will also be an educational tool. I can’t think of a more perfect fit to partner with The Kellar School to unveil the first Kerrigan’s Korner at a school,” said Kerrigan.  

The month of May is designated as Mental Health Month so Kerrigan’s Korner will be a positive resource for students at The Kellar School who are affected by mental health conditions.
