Nancy Larner Ruschman

Nancy Larner Ruschman is the director of community partnerships at Crooked Creek CDC. ”I grew up on the eastside of Indianapolis in Holy Spirit parish, attended both Scecina and Warren Central, received my undergrad and M.A. degrees from Ball State University. I live in Irvington with my family. We love Irvington for its tight-knit community and strong history of grass-roots groups that work together to improve our eastside corner of the world. I’ve volunteered with various Irvington groups in the past including the Irvington Guild of Artists, HOOP (Helping Our Own People) and the Children’s Guardian Home. I have many fond memories of Irvington as a kid – going to Ellenberger Park with my mom and brothers and visiting my dad’s independent business.
