August's Peoples Bank Hometown Spotlight Hero

MCCONNELSVILLE, Ohio (WTAP) Peoples Bank and TheNewsCenter are honoring everyday hometown heroes, and we're excited to announce August's Hometown Spotlight Hero is Douglas McGrath.

McGrath is a patrolman with the McConnelsville Police Department.

He's been serving the public, and keeping the community safe for nearly thirty years.

McGrath says being a policeman was something he realized he wanted to do at a young age.

Douglas Mcgath, a patrolman for the McConnelsville Police Department, said, "When I was sixteen I was in the Boy Scouts, and I achieved the rank of Eagle Scout, and I actually done a finger printing small children as my project, and I worked with the local sheriff's office at the time, and we finger printed little children in case they become loss or missing.

So, I guess things started really culminating at that point."

McGrath thanks his family, friends, and the community for their support.
