James Glenn graduated from Clear Creek High School in 1991 and was attending Texas A&M at the time of his death. He met many of his goals and touched many lives in his 19 short years. He was elected vice president of the student body in his senior year and was honored for his citizenship with the American Legion Award and the Clear Creek Medallion. He was an All-District place kicker each of the three years he played varsity football and he lettered in soccer two years. Despite the odds, his skill and determination earned him a position on the 1991 Southwest Conference champion Aggie football team. He handled the kick-off duties in the Tulsa game the week before he died of an undiagnosed heart problem.
James was more than a student and an athlete. He will be best remembered by those who knew him as a friend who cared. He was a gentle spirit who respected everyone and who had a special rapport with younger children. He is greatly missed by family and friends.
The James Glenn Foundation was established in 1999 and is a recognized 501(c)(3) charitable organization by the Internal Revenue Service and a chartered non-profit organization by the state of Texas. Funds raised in James' memory are turned over to the high school staffs who use them to provide college scholarships for deserving students.
