MEDORA, Ind.—June 26, 2013—Seymour High School graduate Kaelan J. Brennan has earned the Rumpke Medora Landfill Scholarship for his commitment to environmental stewardship. Brennan will attend Purdue University to study environmental engineering.
“As an environmental engineer, it will be my responsibility to design, use and integrate systems and strategies that promote sustainability and a healthier planet,” Brennan wrote in an essay. “As someone who cares about the environment and believes firmly in sustainability, I cannot wait to get started on projects such as these!”
As an SHS student, Brennan was involved in marching band, National Honor Society, Key Club International and served as a D.A.R.E. role model.
Brennan will be recognized at the Medora Landfill Neighbor Night, July 11.
