Tanner Glaza

Congratulations to Tanner Glaza for winning one of two scholarships awarded by Tealinc, Ltd. Tanner’s biography below showcases his excellence in both education and community involvement.

“My name is Tanner Glaza and I am graduating from Lincoln High School in Wisconsin Rapids, WI with a 3.993 GPA on an unweighted grading scale. I am excited and very honored to be a 2013 High School Tealinc Scholarship recipient. My education has always been very important to me; I have always been a hard working student that never passed up an opportunity to learn more. I have spent countless hours of hard work ensuring that I attain academic success and have put in many more hours with studies outside of school that includes teaching myself Italian, German, and Persian. I am also very active in extra-curricular activities. I helped start both the Spanish club at my school, and the Italian club, where I teach the language to the students who otherwise would not have the opportunity to learn it. Through student council, I have been the president of my class and the student representative on the school board. I play tennis as the number one singles player on my team, and am also the team captain. I am a member of a variety of other groups in my school, such as Principal- Student Advisory Council, Promote, National Honor Society, Ski and Snowboard Society, Letterwinners’ Club, Teen Leadership, Drama Club, and Powerlifting Club. Drama has been a big part of my high school career, and I have been involved in many productions such as The Pajama Game, The Man Who Came to Dinner, and Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. Outside of school, I love snowboarding, wakeboarding, playing tennis, and studying foreign languages. In the fall, I will attend the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities, majoring in Chemical Engineering and minoring in Spanish and Italian. In the future, I hope to work as a foreign- based engineer, working in impoverished countries. My goal is to help improve their situations through engineering and change the lives of people worldwide.”
