Scholarship Description

Glen was a graduate of U.S. Naval Academy and Naval Aviator. During his career, he was assigned to the VA-95 Green Lizards, VFA-81 Sunliners and VFA-87 Golden Warriors. He deployed in USS Abraham Lincoln (CVN-72), Enterprise (CVN-65) and Theodore Roosevelt (CVN-71). With numerous combat missions over Iraq and the former Republic of Yugoslavia, Lefty was individually recognized for delivering the first USN combat load in Kosovo. He earned a master’s degree in strategic studies from the Army War College and two additional master’s degrees in business. His dream was to establish a scholarship to help children within our community realize their potential, to continue the growth and progress that makes America great and to improve the world in which we live.
