The Foundation’s purpose is to realize Dr. Joel F. Glover’s vision of giving back to his community through education.

When Sparks High School informed Joel F. Glover that he was to be inducted into the Hall of Fame, he and his son Joel T. discussed the creation of a perpetual scholarship—the goal of which is to enable Sparks High students to fulfill their potential through higher education and, ultimately, through community involvement.
