Empowering Futures

Pay-It-Forward Scholarship

Growing up in poverty as one of 10 children raised by non-English speaking parents, Glenn Armentor’s trajectory seemed destined for a life within courtroom confines rather than behind the attorney’s desk. However, guided by the kindness of strangers and their unwavering support, Glenn’s journey took a transformative turn.

To honor this legacy of generosity, he established the Glenn Armentor ‘Pay-it-Forward’ Scholarship Program. This initiative annually awards a $10,000 scholarship to hardworking, at-risk high school students from the community, empowering them to pursue higher education and reshape their futures. Candidates are meticulously selected by an impartial panel of community leaders, assessing a range of criteria such as academic performance, determination, financial need, and aspirations for higher education.
