“Establish a dream, believe you can achieve it, and go out and make it happen,” Flint Brenton ’77 said during the dedication of The Meg Gerlach Brenton Physical Therapy Teaching Lab in Gallaher Hall in honor of his wife, Meg (Gerlach ’78) Brenton.
Flint, the president and chief executive officer of CollabNet in Silicon Valley, and Meg, a physical therapist, are appreciative of the education they received at Mount Union — their dream started here.
“I couldn’t have predicted that our time at Mount Union would have led us to where we are today,” explained Flint. Meg added that being a physical therapist gave her a real level of fulfillment and a purpose in her life that she hadn’t had before.
The Brentons generously provided a gift to the University by naming the teaching lab, as well as establishing The Meg Gerlach Brenton Endowed Scholarship for students majoring in the life sciences.
“The gift is a wonderfully appropriate way to honor Meg and her service in the profession of physical therapy, and a generous expression of their desire to give back to Mount Union,” said Dick Merriman, former president of the University.
The Brentons believe that Mount Union provides an outstanding education in an environment where students can excel and become leaders whose impact can change the world.
