TAMARAC COMMISSIONER DEBRA PLACKO ANNOUNCES DIANE GLASSER MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP RECIPIENTS 

Tamarac, Fla. (May 26, 2021) – Debra Placko, the City of Tamarac’s District 4 Commissioner, is honoring the late Diane Glasser, a former Tamarac City Commissioner who also served Broward County during her 30-year career in public service, by awarding two District 4 residents with $2,500 scholarships in her name.

On Wednesday, May 26, Commissioner Placko presented the Diane Glasser Memorial Scholarship to J.P. Taravella High School seniors Daniel Arias and Jada Brown.

Aspiring firefighter Daniel Arias recently graduated from J.P. Taravella High School, where he was also dual-enrolled at Broward College. With a passion for public service, Daniel will continue his studies at Broward College, where he will earn an Associate of Science Degree in Fire Science Technology.

After completing a course load of advanced placement classes and attaining a 3.9 unweighted GPA, Jada Brown will attend Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia, where she will major in anthropology.

“Being such an advocate for higher education and civic involvement, I feel this is the ultimate way to honor Diane Glasser’s legacy,” said Commissioner Placko. “These scholarships will make a difference in the lives of Daniel and Jada as they work to achieve their dreams.”

The recipients can use scholarships for educational expenses at a college, university or vocational school.
