THE GOSHEN NEWS

— After growing up in Millersburg, graduating from Fairfield High School and working for years in the RV industry, Scott Chupp, 35, took a leap of faith, moving to Arizona and becoming a U.S. Border Patrol agent. He is married to Angela (Cummins). The couple has a 9-year-old daughter, Kennidy, and a 3-year-old son, Mason. Since moving in 2010, the family enjoys exploring the landscapes of southern Arizona near their home in Tucson.



Where did you grow up?

I grew up in Millersburg on Depot Street, a couple blocks from the old feedmill if you are old enough to remember, because it is long gone now.



What schools did you attend?

Fairfield Jr./Sr. High School (Class of 1994); Columbus College of Art and Design (Class of 1998).



What is your fondest memory of Millersburg?

Being able to ride my bike to any back woods or local swimming hole to enjoy the day. Unfortunately it’s not safe for kids to do that these days.



Describe the essence of Millersburg in your eyes

A small conservative rural community with sound religious ethics.



What about this community would you like to see changed or improved?

More job diversity. The RV industry is too unpredictable and unstable.



What is this community’s best kept secret?

Some of the local artists and musicians in the area.



What has Millersburg meant to you over the years?

There are people in the community that have positively influenced me and I hope to get back to visit them soon.
