Corporal Jason H. Glendenning, Troop I

The MASTERS Public Service Award was created to emphasize the importance of
public service. This award honors a member whose actions strengthen the
Patrol's motto of "Service and Protection". This year's recipient is
Corporal Jason H. Glendenning, Troop I. He is currently assigned to Troop
I, Zone 8, Phelps County. Additionally, Corporal Glendenning provides local
schools with safety information and provides youth programs throughout the
community.

Corporal Glendenning and his wife, Amanda, own and operate Riverfront Camp
and Canoe on the Niangua River in Laclede County. Over the last few years,
the Glendennings have used the resources of their business and property to
raise money for cancer research. They organized adventure races to benefit
the Curry Cancer Center being built at St. John's Medical Center in
Lebanon, Missouri. As the sponsor of the adventure races, Corporal
Glendenning donated the resources of the business, and spent many long
hours cutting and clearing trails for the running and cycling events. He
also procured additional sponsors and advertised the event outside the
local area. Over a three-year-period, their diligent efforts resulted in
$8,500 being raised for the center.

As a member of the sports booster club at Joel E. Barber Elementary, he
recognized the school's need for athletic equipment and uniforms. With that
cause in mind, the Glendennings continued the adventure races, raising in
excess of $4,000 to date.

In 2008, after learning that a fellow trooper's son was diagnosed with a
brain tumor, the Glendenning family organized a float trip fundraiser.
Annually, the Glendennings donate $1,000 worth of free camping and canoeing
to the Stream Team, who work to keep rivers and streams clean of trash and
debris. The Glendennings donate approximately $800 per year to various
causes through gift certificates to their business.

Corporal Glendenning serves on the Lebanon Youth Football League's Board of
Directors, and serves as a wrestling and football coach. On his own time,
he has worked with the faculty and staff of the local elementary school
regarding the implementation of policies and procedures to make the
facility safer.

It is the feeling of the board of The MASTERS that Corporal Glendenning
embodies what this Public Service Award represents. His actions are a
credit to himself and to the Missouri State Highway Patrol.
