Seventeen years ago, Bellwood-Antis graduate Christopher McClellan spoke at the 2001 Bellwood-Antis Commencement.

After graduating from Bellwood-Antis Christopher pursued a Bachelor of Science degree in biology at Juniata College in Huntington, where he graduated in 1996. He then moved to Lake Erie College.

He graduated Lake Erie College within top five percent of his classes with a degree in Osteopathic medicine.

Dr. McClellan was given an award from LECOM, Dean’s Academic Scholarship 2000, as well as being trained as a second year Resident as a Physician-Orthopedic Surgical Residency.
