Bio of Michelle Glenn
UWC of Southeast Asia
Lewis & Clark College
Michelle Glenn graduated from United World College of SE Asia (UWC) in 1986. A US citizen, Michelle moved to Singapore when she was just two years old. Before leaving for college in Portland, Oregon, Michelle spent fourteen years in Singapore, a significant portion of it in the UWC system.
"I was very lucky to have the honor of attending UWC. It was an absolutely wonderful school. It gave me a head start, not just on college, but on life in general," Michelle says. "One of the best things about UWC was the fact that there were so many international students there. I was exposed to many cultures and different ways of thinking. It was a unique experience."
When told of the Davis United World College Scholars program, Michelle was delighted. "The scholarships will give students an incentive to broaden their horizons. I am sure that more UWC students will choose to come to the US for their education because of this program. It will also help UWC students and parents to understand that there are some great, small liberal arts colleges, in the US, and that Lewis & Clark is one of them!" About Mr. Shelby Davis, the benefactor of the program, Michelle states, "He is very generous. He will have an immeasureable impact on the lives of many UWC students."
Following her graduation from Lewis & Clark College in 1990, Michelle worked in San Francisco and Chicago, primarily in the healthcare/IT field. She currently works in Chicago, Illinois as director of product management for HIMSS Analytics, a trade association for the healthcare/IT industry.
