Greg Bennett Comes From a Humble Background
Greg is really interested in meteorology and the field of science, but he is also a very genuine person. He grew up in a productive, middle-class home, the son of a truck driver, with his parents making an effort to make ends meet and provide a better life for him and his two siblings.
Every summer and winter vacation, Greg would drive his father’s truck and move furniture with him to earn money for college since the day he could lift a lampshade.
Every time they went on a road trip, his father would always tell him, “Son, I want something better for you. I hope you won’t become like me. I want you to use your head rather than your back.”
Greg took his father’s words very seriously, and to this day, on his days off, he still helps his father with moving furniture.
