Glenda Stroud — Camino South
Glenda served as a CLCCA Camino South Trustee from June, 2008-June, 2014. For 4 terms (2010-2014) she served as Treasurer. On April 29, 2015, she was appointed to the Board to fill the vacancy for Camino South. She was again elected to the Board in 2017.
Glenda was born/ reared in rural, small-town West Texas. She sped through Abilene Christian University in 3 years, later taking graduate courses at Uof H. In 1968, she and her husband Carl moved into their new home in Camino South. Carl was a Systems Analyst [Bldg.30] for NASA. 1968 was also the first year CCISD placed 6th grade in its two Intermediate Schools [Seabrook and Webster]: it found Glenda teaching 6th grade Language Arts at Seabrook Intermediate as that was her favorite age level of instruction. Adding Social Studies to the Language Arts block made for an exciting curriculum, especially when two Soviet members of the Apollo/Soyuz Mission Team came to class.
Teaching took a backseat to volunteer school assignments and family care-giving responsibilities. The love of history and research merged into Glenda's compilation of genealogical trees while creating the necessity for many a'searching trips across the USA.
Carl took his Heavenly Journey 5 years ago. Their son and daughter-in-law also make their home in Clear Lake City. From a musical family, Glenda chose not to pursue a music career yet still enjoys her baby grand piano.
Glenda is a self-described Texas Honey Mesquite Tree: somewhat lacy, plenty of beans in rain or drought, roots that run deep, solid wood that is tough,.....and plenty of thorns to discourage any pesky varmints.
