WINTERSVILLE — Ohio State Highway Patrol Trooper Gregory B. Scalley has been named as trooper of the year at the Steubenville Post.

Scalley was selected by his fellow troopers based on his leadership abilities, professional ethics, courteous treatment of others, enthusiastic work attitude and cooperation with supervisors, peers and the public, according to officials.

Scalley joined the patrol in 2012 and has served at the Steubenville Post since 2013.

Scalley, originally from Toronto and a graduate of Edison High School, also received the safe driving award and the division physical fitness award.

“Trooper Scalley displays the core values of the highway patrol both on and off duty,” said Patrol Lt. Joseph Fetty. “He contributes his time on duty as well as off duty.

He also played a major role in scheduling and arranging the 2017 Buying with Bears program for the Steubenville area this year. These are the things that make Trooper Scalley stand out as a quality employee.”
