Lonnie and Myra Glor Inducted Into Hall of Fame

Many of you will have fond memories of days spent in these two exceptional educators’ classrooms, Lonnie and Myra Glor. After Lonnie and Myra graduated from Southwest Missouri State College, now known as Missouri State University, they were married in 1970 and Lonnie entered the United States Army, while Myra began teaching in Versailles, Missouri. In 1975, the two moved back to Dallas County to begin their teaching careers in the Dallas County School District, returning to teach in the school district they graduated from in 1966. Mr. Glor began teaching art in three buildings and later, teaching only at the high school. Mrs. Glor began teaching history subjects including Sociology, Psychology, World History, and American History. After 27 years of teaching in the Dallas County School District, the Glors retired in 2002. 

The Glors have been active in the community and members of the First Christian Church and currently, Calvary Chapel, assisting with many activities and responsibilities. Lonnie has served 14 years as Administrative Minister at Calvary Chapel. He has donated his time to create architectural plans for church and school projects, as well as created the beautiful stained glass windows for Calvary Chapel which earned him a letter of commendation from the governor. Myra served 12 years on the Dallas County Schools Board of Education from 2004-2016, including serving as President, Secretary, and Treasurer.

Mr. and Mrs. Glor made huge differences in students and fellow staff members lives. They mentored new teachers and made them part of the school family. They loved everyone unconditionally. Teaching was a ministry for them. Myra truly enjoyed having fun with the students, but they knew when it was time to get to work.  The Glors’ commitment to the success of their students and their dedication to education and the school district, sets them apart as exceptional educators. 

Mr. and Mrs. Glor are also parents and grandparents. They have of two sons, Justin and wife Melissa of Buffalo, and Grant of Republic, who are also Buffalo graduates. They also have two grandchildren.
