There are many students that appreciated his extra help. You can see it FB Haskell Alumni and Legacy.com. I was one of them too. Thank you Mr Glasco. RIP.

From Valerie Switzler...

Mr. Glasco was an incredible teacher. He really cared for his students. He made learning fun. He would do problems on the board then he would look up as if he saw a blackboard in the sky and say “Now how would I explain this to mother…” then smirk. I was one of his older students and he always made sure everyone understood what he was teaching. We had fun learning calculus and statistics because it became relevant to our lives.

From Patricia Baxter...

Loved his sense of humor and was the best math tutor. He will be very much missed. Prayers to his family.
