Scholarship Helps Students Find Success
A kindergarten teacher for 30 years, Carol Glass, credits the many role models she had as a student teacher at the Lab School, along with her training at Iowa State Teachers College (UNI), for her successful teaching career.
Carol, '62, knows the value of both male and female role models for children. She saw the lack of male role models in the lives of many of her students and vowed to change that.
"I don't have any grandchildren to help with college expenses, so I decided to share with students who need help. I especially wanted to help young men since I have two sons and want young children to have good experiences with males," Carol says.
An annual scholarship ensures that wish comes true. "I am well aware the cost of education has risen astronomically since I was in school," says Carol, "and that many students graduate with a great deal of debt. I wanted to help students avoid that."
Carol's hope for Glass Scholars is that they choose an occupation where they find happiness each day they go to work.
"Ideally, they will find success in their chosen fields and will find many opportunities to help others both at work and play," she says.
In addition to her annual scholarship, Carol designated UNI as the beneficiary of her retirement account. That, along with her Hummel figurine collection, will fund the Carol Glass Elementary Education Scholarship Endowment.
Since retiring, Carol has volunteered in schools, cooked in a soup kitchen and traveled with her husband, Jerry Rewerts, abroad and within the United States.
