First Lieutenant Michael Trent

Hometown: Fort Wayne, Indiana

Degree Sought: Master of Business Administration
Driven by a desire for public service and deeply affected by the events of September 11, 2001, First Lieutenant Michael Trent changed his life course and enlisted in the Marine Corps – a far different plan than he had originally imagined.
After almost five years of service, a marriage, and two births, Michael now seeks to continue his education and earn an MBA so that he can team up with his wife, a nurse practitioner, and pursue their joint dream of owning and operating a nonprofit pediatric health clinic to increase access to health care for underprivileged children at home and abroad.
On November 7, 2010, Michael Trent will take to the streets of New York as one of 40 members of Team Tillman New York raising funds and awareness for the Pat Tillman Foundation. Click here to support Michael and his Team Tillman teammates as they run 26.2 miles in the ING New York City Marathon.
