McClain senior Brenton Louk is the latest recipient of the Wilfred R. Konneker Cutler Scholarship, and he will be a part of the premier Cutler Scholars Program at Ohio University this fall. The program recruits high school seniors and selects its students based on their intellectual curiosity, leadership, service and character. According to Ohio University, “the program elements are designed to reinforce a leadership philosophy emphasizing civic responsibility. Louk is the son of Rex and Danielle Louk. He is a part of several clubs and activities, including vice president of Hi-Y, a varsity member of Quick Recall, and an executive committee member of Spanish Club. He is the Student Council treasurer, was a part of the Junior Executive Committee, and now the Senior Executive Committee, and was the vice president of the Junior Class. He is also a two-year member of the National Honor Society. He plans on majoring in biochemistry while at Ohio University. When Brenton was asked how does he feel to be the latest person to recieve this sholarship, he had this to say as, “It is truly an honor. I certainly couldn’t have done it without the help I received along the way, and I am certainly beholden to those who have aided me as well as the Konneker family"
