Class of 2022: Francis Ayson ’22

We celebrate the Class of 2022, what they have achieved during their years at Ripon and what they hope to achieve in the next chapter of their lives.


Francis Ayson ’22 of Clovis, California, majored in history with a minor in music. He will be seeking football graduate assistant coaching opportunities while working over the summer.


He says the most important lesson he learned at Ripon is, “Mental toughness and working consistently are key components for a successful life. I enjoyed my time as an active member of the Phi Kappa Pi fraternity. The moments and good times I have made with my frat brothers will be cherished forever.”
