Member - District 2
Glenna Jehl is a realtor with Olinger & Associates, Inc. She traveled extensively as the daughter of a career naval officer; attending various public schools in the United States and at overseas military bases in Asia and Africa; eventually graduating from Kenitra American High School in Morocco. Having had the privilege of living all over the world, she gained a deep appreciation for diverse cultures and societies. Glenna became the first member of her family to attain a college degree when she graduated from the University of Notre Dame with a BA in International Relations and Japanese.
Upon graduation, she married Steve, a native of Fort Wayne, put down roots here and raised five children. She now also enjoys two wonderful grandchildren. Glenna was inspired by the Jehl family legacy of 50 years of involvement in the development of Northeast Fort Wayne and giving back to the community in many ways, including involvement in Georgetown Little League, the Lifetime Sports Academy and the University of Saint Francis Football.
Over the years, Ms. Jehl has served the community by volunteering in various civic organizations including being active in the Republican Party, her church, SAFY, a foster care agency and the Crossing School.
She serves on the FWCS Board because, "My involvement with agencies that dealt with troubled foster-care children and dropouts has made me keenly aware that we need to do all we can to help our children and our youth become successful in life. A superb education is the best way to ensure our children have an opportunity for a brighter future and the ability to compete for jobs in the 21st Century. I look forward to helping FWCS place a greater emphasis on educational programs of excellence. I will work to improve academics so each high school graduate will be ready for college (without the need for remediation) or are well equipped to step into challenging careers. I want to see our schools transformed into model schools that other communities will emulate and families will want their children to have the opportunity to attend."
