In the Community
As one of 10 kids raised by non-English speaking parents, Glenn Armentor and his family battled poverty throughout his childhood. Glenn was destined to live a life as a defendant in courtrooms rather than as an attorney. His destiny changed thanks to the guidance and generosity of others, some of whom were total strangers. Glenn has never forgotten their faith in him, which is why he created the Glenn Armentor Pay-it-Forward Scholarship Program.
Every year, hardworking at-risk high school students from our community are awarded a $10,000 scholarship to pursue higher education and change their lives. Recipients are selected by an independent panel of community leaders based on a combination of attributes, including student performance, drive, ability, need, desire to seek a college degree, and more.
