TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - Edward Waters College president Nat Glover was recognized Tuesday with the Great Floridian award for his dedication to higher education and the community of Jacksonville.
Gov. Rick Scott presented the award to Glover, who previously served in the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office for more than 50 years and was elected as the first African American sheriff in Jacksonville in over 100 years.
Glover also provided $250,000 to create a scholarship fund for deserving low-income students in the Jacksonville community.
“Nat Glover is very deserving of the Great Floridian award, and I am proud to recognize his many years of service today,” Scott said. “Nat is committed to making sure Florida students have the opportunity to achieve their dreams. We are also thankful for his more than 50 years in law enforcement and keeping the families in Jacksonville safe.”
The Great Floridian award is given to men and women who have made significant contributions to the progress and welfare of Florida.
Glover said he was honored to receive the award.
“I have dedicated many years of my life and career to providing opportunities for Florida’s students to succeed and attend college,” Glover said. “I hope my life inspires others to invest in their communities and support our state’s young people.”
Glover has lived in Jacksonville throughout his life. He graduated from the 130th Session of the FBI National Academy after receiving his master’s degree from the University of North Florida.
Glover began his law enforcement career at the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office in 1966 and was elected as Jacksonville’s Sheriff from 1995 until 2003.
He has served on numerous community boards and was appointed as the Edward Waters College president in 2011.
