SIAC’s Glen Mowery and the Charlotte-Mecklenburg (North Carolina) Police Activities League (PAL) are combining on a scholarship to help educate youth. We are blessed to have people like Glen on our staff. The work we do, whether for SIAC or in our personal lives, extends beyond the security industry and alarm management issues, and into the communities we live in.
The character our SIAC staff exhibit is demonstrated by Glen’s commitment to help students get financial access to college. We’re proud of you, Glen.
