Glen Cove Chamber Memorializes Dr. Glenn Howard Jr. With Scholarship
The Glen Cove Chamber of Commerce is proud to announce that their annual scholarship will now be named after Dr. Glenn Howard Jr. to keep his memory alive. The passing of Dr. Howard has left the community profoundly saddened, as Glenn was a precious resource, advisor and liaison not only to the Chamber, but other local organizations as well. He was extremely active, well known and highly respected by all who knew him. In the Chamber, Glenn served on the board for decades, bringing an unmatched wealth of knowledge and leadership experience to the table. He was a tireless volunteer who was ever ready, willing and able to help out in any project or detail, because he always had something of real value to contribute. Glenn possessed extreme intellect, wit and wisdom that we welcomed and came to rely upon.
Education was very important to Dr. Howard and he became especially involved in administering the annual Chamber Scholarship. He enjoyed the privilege of reading the creative essays submitted by our high school seniors and having a voice in judging those essays. As joyful as it was for Glenn to pick winners, he always deeply lamented having to disqualify applicants who wrote good essays but simply didn't follow the instructions required for eligible applications. So, dear applicants, please be sure to follow the instructions for applying!
The board of Glen Cove Chamber of Commerce feels that the Dr. Glenn Howard, Jr Scholarship is a fitting way to perpetuate the legacy of our beloved Glenn while honoring students and helping them financially.
