I went to Glenwood School for Boys from 1987 till 1991. I graduated 8th grade there and then went back home to go to high school. I was a very good freind of Lance Owens. I am in shock. I never even knew any of this happened. I can't believe it!

I also went to Glenwood School for Boys in the early 80's. It took many years for me to be able to talk about the sexual abuse and what happend to me while I went there for school. I also knew or saw other kids that were being abused at the school. My sexual abuse was mostly done onto me by the older boys at the school but there was one part time house parent who abused me and even threatend me that he would hurt me if I ever told anyone so many year after I never spoke about it until years later after dealing with the death of my Step Dad whom I loved and felt was like my real father that the past from Glenwood came over me and I fell into a deep depression over it. I'm still to this day talking with my therapist over the damage it has caused me. If you had a great experience at Glenwood thats great for you but don't deny or put down others who had a differnt experience than yours because sexual abuse did go on at Glenwood. I can't speak about it still going on in this day and age with it now having Co Ed but if it is than thats sad because another generation will have to go through what we did and nothing will have changed in how the school is being watched and protecting of the young minds and bodies of the kids that attend school there.

I have nothing but contempt for my years at Glenwood. The entire set up promoted abuse, both physical and sexual. Older boys were given power over young boys and allowed to hit them to encourage discipline. The "dean" once started paddling every boy in the school because he wanted to know who broke some branchescollective punishment was common. I have only started posting about my experiences recently, decades later and rarely spoken about any of it, and never told anyone all of it.
