A scholarship has been created in honor of former Tamarac City Commissioner Diane Glasser.

At the March 10 city commission meeting, District 4 city commissioner Debra Placko announced a scholarship for high school graduates was created in Glasser’s name.

“This is something I wanted to do for a while,” said Commissioner Placko.  She shared how as a newly elected official, Glasser took her under her wing.


In 2017, the political powerhouse passed away at the age of 89. She began her political career in Tamarac, representing the politically influential Kings Point community as a city council member in 1991, giving up her seat the next year to run unsuccessfully as mayor.

She was elected as a city commissioner in 2008 and was reelected each term until 2016. She also served as vice mayor in 2011 – 2012 and again in 2015 – 2016.

Two $2,500 scholarships will be awarded to students living in the District 4 area. Students must have a minimum 2.5 GPA, verified proof of community service in Broward County, and registration for the summer or fall of 2021 in an accredited associate’s, bachelors, or vocational program.

Online applications must be received by May 1, by 5:00 p.m. to
