The Sneads High School gym was filled with family, friends, teammates, faculty, and staff Friday afternoon at 1 p.m. to witness Shelby Glawson sign on the dotted line to continue her education and volleyball playing days at Daytona State College.

Shelby has the distinction of being the only senior on the volleyball team who has been a part of four straight state championships.  In talking about Shelby and her volleyball playing days, coach Sheila Roberts said, “Out of all of our athletes and students she is the first ever Pirate to be, in the history of the school, to be a four-time state champion. Her name will go down in history for sure. We will have to get a plaque somewhere or something. Pretty impressive. Shelby accumulated in her senior year 251 kills and 52 blocks. She has been a huge part of the success for this program. Her teammates and coaches will miss her dearly, but this is not a sad day. This is a happy, happy day. Shelby was being recruited by several different schools, but we are thankful and blessed that she was able to find a school that’s perfect for her. She had choices to stay close to home, but ended up choosing Daytona State College, where she’ll be a Lady Falcon, and we’re excited for her and excited for that program.”

Principal John Shouse says of Glawson, “Not only is she a great athlete, she’s a good all-around student.  Not often that you get the best of both worlds and you do with Shelby.”

Shelby is the daughter of Wendall and Gail Glawson.
