The Brandan Kalmerton Memorial Scholarship was established after a loved member of our Club, and our community was lost in an accident in August of 2010.  Brandan was very active within our Club and had a penchant for all things outdoors. Otter Street teamed up with the Brandan Kalmerton Memorial Fund to offer a scholarship to high school seniors looking to study Natural Resources at UW-Stevens Point.
