The Glen Legler Memorial Scholarship was set up to benefit kids, to remember our dad, and to celebrate his life by contributing to someone else's future.
Glen Legler was indescribable in a lot of ways, but we will do our best. He was above all else an amazing father, husband, and role model. Family was always his number one priority. Not far behind though, was his job and his passion, which was doing what was best for kids.
Growing up, Dad was an athlete. He loved rodeo and track. He was always involved in extra curricular activities as a student. And he encouraged every kid to find something "extra" to get into, other then just the books. Teaching was always a passion of his; however, it wasn't all about the lessons and tests. He could always see the bigger picture in how one might be able to effect a kids life in a positive way. He was someone who knew what it meant to "work hard at work worth doing". He was the definition of integrity, loyalty, and love. He stayed until the job was done no matter how long it took. He was an inspiration as a father and most definitely as a human being. We don't care what kind of work you want to do someday, or where you want to go to school. Dad loved all kids, and he loved school and sports no matter the area.
Now for the work!
In 5 paragraphs, let us know why you think you deserve a scholarship in our dad's name. We have attached some links so that you may learn more about him. You can check out the comments on the website we created during the week he collapsed. If you read them, you'll see why it was necessary to make a website at all. He touched so many lives that we simply couldn't find a better way to keep everyone updated on how he was doing. He was a community dad. He saw the best in all people and had many friends. If you ever met him and talked to him for more then a few minutes, you were his friend. Happy Applying.
This year we will be awarding 3 people $1000.00 a piece. All of the money has come from donations following Dad's death and various fundraisers put on by the community throughout the years in Casper Wyoming. Thank you so much everyone who contributed. Dad would have loved this. This money will go directly to the winning applicants so that it may be used for whatever is needed.
