The need is real.
The days of working over the summer to pay for school are long gone. Many fulltime students work one or two jobs to cover living expenses in addition to taking out student loans.
Requests for student aid are at an all-time high, and your scholarship support is needed now more than ever. Alumni investment in current students shows not only a commitment to the Glenn College but appreciation for those who choose to pursue vital careers in the non-profit, public administration and policy fields.
I was the beneficiary of a scholarship when I was an undergraduate and know firsthand what a difference scholarships make in the lives of students as they pursue their dreams. Now I can support others on their journey, and give back to the community that continues to mean so much to me. The new monthly gift campaign makes giving even easier: monthly donations spread the impact across an entire year while making giving routine for people on a budget.
As the son of a single parent police officer, I came from modest means. But for the generosity of others, I may not have been afforded the opportunity to obtain a graduate degree. It was my time at OSU that opened the door for me to intern with the Columbus City Council, from which a number of relationships were developed, ultimately resulting in my current appointment. It is my duty to help open the door for others. I hope my donations make at least a small difference for our future leaders. O-H!
Teaching at the Glenn College has allowed me to meet students preparing to serve in public service roles. I am continually impressed by their caliber and talent - and inspired by their passion. I can assure you that donating to the scholarship fund is an excellent investment in our future.
I give to the Glenn College because I believe in its mission in training and educating future leaders who will make a difference in their communities. By giving monthly or annually to the Glenn College – students will have opportunities for scholarships, receive world class academic programming, and enrichment opportunities from the statehouse to the White House. I’m proud to be a proud of the Glenn family and invest in our future leaders.
