2017 Scholarship Award Recipient Gregory Cutler
The 2017 Westchester Municipal Planning Federation scholarship was awarded to Gregory Cutler. Greg Cutler received his bachelor’s degree in Geography from Binghamton University and is currently pursuing a Masters in Urban Planning at Hunter College. He has been working in the planning field in Westchester County since 2012. Starting as a part-time GIS technician in the Village of Mamaroneck, and a public housing intern at the Town of Mamaroneck, Greg quickly advanced to the assistant planner position in the Village. He has contributed his time to WMPF as well as to the Hunter Graduate Urban Planning Association. Greg has a strong commitment to planning in Westchester, and the scholarship committee felt that this commitment, in addition to his academic success at Hunter and his community service, made him the best choice for the 2017 scholarship award.
