Candice Wilson Glenn Named Honorary Alumna

Candice “Candi” Wilson Glenn received her Juris Doctorate from Southwestern University in Georgetown, Texas in 1991. She is the wife of Gerald M. Glenn (Class of 1964) and mother of Mike (Class of 2016) and Charlie (Class of 2018). She has been an avid supporter of Clemson academics and athletics since she met and married Gerald. Candi is extremely passionate about investing in quality education and believes it benefits the recipients and their communities in perpetuity. In her own words, “An education is something that cannot be taken away from you, no matter what happens.”  Both Candi and Gerald have been champions for numerous important Clemson initiatives. They named and generously endowed the Glenn Department of Civil Engineering in the College of Engineering and Computer Applied Science, created the Gerald and Candice Glenn Family Unrestricted Endowment for Clemson Athletics, and have recently agreed to become a Cornerstone Partner for Athletics.

The Honorary Alumnus designation was presented to Candi prior to the Clemson vs. Texas A&M football game on Clemson’s campus by Clemson University president, Jim Clements, Clemson Alumni Board President, Mike Dowling, and Alumni Executive Director, Wil Brasington.
