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.

n 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.

Don’t feel the need to focus on your own hardships. We’d much rather hear about where you’re going, rather than where you’ve been. You also don’t need to compare yourself to our dad. Again, we’re interested in the story of where you are going. Finally, don’t worry about sending us a letter of recommendation. We want you to write your own letter of recommendation. Thanks so much, and Happy Applying.

This year we will be awarding 2 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.
