Mission Statement of the Thomas I. Glasser Memorial Scholarship Fund

To give children of active and retired Summit Police Officers seeking to further their education as well as any
Summit High School graduating senior seeking a degree in law enforcement or criminal justice the opportunity
to obtain financial assistance for higher education in order to pursue their chosen career or profession.

The Thomas I. Glasser Memorial Scholarship Fund was created to give children of Summit Police officers
seeking to further their education as well as any Summit High School graduating senior seeking a degree in law
enforcement or criminal justice the opportunity to obtain financial assistance for higher education in order to
pursue their chosen career or profession. In 2001 Thomas I. Glasser, a Summit resident, came to Summit PBA
Local #55 and said he wanted to do something for Summit Police officers and their families. He became a
founding member in the establishment of the scholarship fund and was a driving force in the creation of it. One
week before the scholarship fund was to hold its first meeting; Tom was lost in the World Trade Center disaster
on September 11th, 2001.
