Protect Geauga Parks has created a Conservation Scholarship in honor of former Geauga Park District Board member, the late Bob McCullough. Scholarships will be awarded to assist students in Geauga County who are graduating in the current academic year and plan to study the natural sciences at an accredited college or university. Three scholarships will be awarded in 2018 in the amount of $1,000 each. The scholarships are intended to support students who have an interest in studying the natural or environmental sciences and have demonstrated a commitment to conservation through extra-curricular activities, projects or part time employment.
