Brett McClinton, a Grove City native, was chosen as the second winner of the 2021 Scholarship Contest. Brett is a Persian Gulf War veteran who worked as an electrician in the construction industry prior to enrolling in an undergraduate program. He works on small local home improvement jobs in addition to attending classes as a non-traditional student.  In his spare time, he serves as a Board member of Armstrong Trails, a non-profit land trust that manages and maintains 37-mile rails-to-trails corridor. Brett attends Slippery Rock University and has chosen a dual major in Environmental Geoscience-Geology and Geography-Applied Geographic Technology.  Brett is hoping to find a niche where he can utilize the skillsets of both degrees.  He wants to create a positive impact on the world with whatever career path he follows.
