Grant McArtor ’19 is from Boiling Springs, South Carolina and graduated high school at the McCallie School in Chattanooga, Tennessee. In high school, Grant was a member the National Honor Society and the Cum Laude Society and lettered in varsity rowing. Additionally, Grant was a National Merit Finalist and an AP Scholar with Distinction.

As a student at Dartmouth, Grant intends to major in Economics and minor in Government.

For his First-Year Fellowship, Grant was placed with Jenny Chandler ’82 at the National Council of Nonprofits, which works with federal, state, and local governments to ensure that the needs of nonprofits are being adequately met in public policy. 

“I think my favorite part of the fellowship and the internship specifically was the knowledge that I had at the end of my internship contributed positively to the mission of my organization,” says Grant. “Whether it was through the articles I worked on or the plethora of ‘little things’ I did to help out, I was pleasantly surprised that I could make an impact, even though I had virtually no previous experience in this field of work.”

Grant also really appreciated the mentorship provided by Jenny Chandler. “I left the National Council of Nonprofits better off that I came to it, thanks in large part to the kind generosity and thoughtfulness of Mrs. Chandler.”

Back on campus, Grant is a member of the varsity lightweight rowing team and a participant in Christian Union at Dartmouth. He plans on pursuing a career in business after graduation.
