A student in the Air Conditioning Technology diploma program at North Georgia Technical College is the school’s winner of a $2500 veterans’ scholarship.
Danny Glenn recently received the Grainger $2500 Veteran’s Tools for Tomorrow Scholarship.
W.W. Grainger, Inc., a world-wide distributor of industrial and commercial equipment and supplies, recognizes outstanding students with a $2,000 scholarship and a customized toolkit valued at $500 upon successful completion of the student’s technical education program.
Glenn will complete his diploma in December and then will continue with the commercial refrigeration certificate in the Spring.
Through a competitive selection process, students studying electronic systems, heating/air conditioning, plumbing, pneumatics, welding, automotive, construction, facilities maintenance or other industrial trade may apply for the scholarship.
This is the second Grainger Veterans scholarship winner at NGTC.
Beginning in Fall 2010, a limited number of scholarships were set aside by the Grainger Corporation specifically for veterans of the U.S. Armed Forces.
Glenn is a veteran of the US MC/Army and resides in Lula.
