UNC Charlotte business student receives scholarship

UNC Charlotte business student Gregory Grattan is one of five students in North Carolina to be honored this year by the state pest association.

Grattan, a sophomore at UNC Charlotte and graduate of East Mecklenburg High, received a $3,000 scholarship from the North Carolina Pest Management Association to continue his education.

The scholarships are designed for students enrolling or currently enrolled in post-high-school programs. Since its creation in 2004, the education foundation of the NCPMA has awarded scholarships worth more than $72,500 to students across North Carolina.

Grattan has worked for his family’s pest management business, Grattan Pest Solutions, for three years and plans to continue his work with the company in the future.
