State Rep. Gary Glenn, R-Midland, and regional business leader Ron Beebe, also of Midland, have joined the advisory board of Midland Christian School, the private faith-based K-12 academy announced recently.
Glenn is a first-term member of the state House of Representatives representing the city of Midland and 13 townships in Bay and Midland counties. He also serves as president of a Christian nonprofit advocacy group and coauthored the Marriage Protection Amendment, constitutionally defining marriage between one man and one woman. Glenn attends Midland Baptist Church and his son is a senior at Calvary Baptist Academy, another faith-based K-12 school in Midland.
Beebe is owner and CEO of Euclid Industries in Bay City and Awrey’s Bakery in Livonia, as well as a principal in the Bluewater Angels organization, a group of Great Lakes Bay Region business leaders who invest in promising companies. He and his wife, Gaye, were primary sponsors of “Swingshift and the Stars,” a local amateur dance competition benefiting Christian and other local charitable organizations.
Other members of the Midland Christian School advisory board are Peter Brooks of Family Life Radio, Karl Ieuter of Ieuter Insurance, Glenn Moots and John Pafford of Northwood University, Joe Lehman, president of the Mackinac Center for Public Policy, and Dave Westphal of Nexteer/DLW Partners.
