CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo., March 19, 2014 – The Dan and Marilyn Glore Endowed Scholarship has been established through the Southeast Missouri University Foundation.
The Glores, of Barnhart, Mo., made a $10,000 gift to establish the scholarship. Their gift will be matched with an additional $10,000 through a University matching gift program.
The matching gift program is part of the Honoring Tradition – Inspiring Success Comprehensive Campaign through the Southeast Missouri University Foundation. This program allowed donors to make a minimum commitment of $5,000 to a maximum commitment of $10,000 through donation or pledge by March 1, 2014, that qualified for a $1-for-$1 match. The goal of the Campaign is to raise $40 million for student scholarships, academic programs and renovations that benefit students both today and tomorrow.
The renewable scholarship will be awarded to a student enrolled at Southeast with preference given to a student from Jefferson County in Missouri. Second preference will be given to a student from St. Francois or Butler counties in Missouri. Students must have a minimum 3.0 grade point average. The University Scholarship Committee will select the recipient.
Dan Glore graduated from Southeast with three degrees. He earned a Bachelor of Science in Education, secondary education, with a major in social studies in 1970, a Master of Arts in education in 1975 and a Specialist’s in education in 1988. He is a retired Fox High School principal.
Marilyn (Hill) Glore received two degrees from Southeast. She earned a Bachelor of Science in Education, secondary education, with majors in mathematics and English in 1968 and a Master of Arts in education (counseling) in 1972.

They are members of the Southeast Copper Dome Society, and the Glores’ charitable foundation has funded numerous cultural activities in the St. Louis area.
