The Glyn Cook Memorial Scholarship was established in 2008 with the mission to establish a lasting legacy for long time and influential board member Glyn Cook. To that end, the Glyn Cook Memorial Scholarship will provide financial assistance to qualified Daniel kids seeking to further their education at an accredited university, college, or trade school.
Kids who have graduated high school after being in the programs at Daniel, and who have met requirements for grades, community service and leadership will be considered.
Since the formation of the scholarship, Daniel has awarded over $33,000 in scholarships. Scholarships are awarded in August each year.
The scholarship is stewarded by an Executive Committee who reviews the finalists for the scholarship each year as well as overseeing the planning and implementation of fundraising events, most notably the Backyard BBQ Championships. The executive committee is comprised of:
- Jackie Daniel Cook
- Chrissie Catto
- Emily Pepper
- Cole Pepper
- Page Marchman
- Mary Glyn Cook
