Donor Fund Story:
This scholarship was created by Paul’s wife Joyce because of Paul’s success as a lifelong farmer. She knew that he would be pleased to be able to help students in Noble County pursue a career in agriculture. Joyce had heard about the strengths of the Community Foundation of Noble County and knew that her fund would be safe with them.
Paul Glass was born at McCray (Lakeside) Hospital on August 13, 1926 and grew up on the family farm. He enjoyed sports and especially the Chicago White Sox. Paul was introduced by a friend to Joyce and they got married on January 19, 1957. Paul enjoyed attending his three daughter’s school activities and later on in his life he enjoyed attending his grandchildren’s school activities.
Paul was active in Noble County. He served as an elder in the First Christian Church. He was on the board of People’s Federal Bank in Kendallville and was also on the board at Central Noble Schools. He was involved in the Noble County Fair by serving on the fair board and being the superintendant of the Sheep Barn. He was also a part of the Mount Pleasant Cemetery Board.
His wife Joyce appreciated his honesty, hard work, and for being a great father to their three girls. Paul’s goal was to live a life pleasing to God. His favorite passage in scripture was the Lord’s Prayer (Matthew 6: 9-13) which reads:
“This, then, is how you should pray:
Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come,
your will be done
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
Forgive us our debts,
as we also have forgiven our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from the evil one.”
