Bill and Connie Glynn established this scholarship in 2012 in memory of their daughter, Sally Ann Glynn. Sally was killed in an automobile accident in June of 1995, the summer following her freshman year at Gonzaga University. She was 19 years old.
The Glynns have three other children, all of whom attended Gonzaga. Daniel, the oldest, earned his juris doctorate in 1995 and Jeffrey received a bachelor's degree in business administration in '96. Nancy, meanwhile, started her college career at Gonzaga, but transferred to Boise State University to be closer to family following Sally's death.
Sally was a graduate of Bishop Kelly High School in Boise, Idaho, and Bill and Connie feel they owe so much of their family's good fortune to many years of Catholic education. They hope in some small way this scholarship may help others experience that same good fortune.
Scholarships given in Sally's name are intended for students with significant financial need from the Boise area, where the Glynns have primarily resided since moving to Idaho in 1973. If no student from Boise meets the criteria, then students from other parts of Southern Idaho may be considered. Sally Ann Glynn, pictured
