Glyn J. Godwin can only be described as unique–spiritually, academically, and professionally. In his conversations, he often says that even at 63, he still doesn’t know what he wants to be when he grows up. His resume supports his self-deprecatory description.
Glyn is bold in his Christian faith. That boldness came after years of devotion to secular intellectualism and atheism his long tenure in academia seeded within him. Glyn earned a bachelorette in biology from Southeastern Louisiana University, then a masters in microbiology. From there, he earned a Ph.D. in food microbiology and toxicology from LSU. Glyn’s dissertation was published in the form of a scientific article in the Microbiology Section of the prestigious, refereed scientific journal, The Journal of Food Science. Before graduating LSU, Glyn took the Law School Aptitude Test, feeling he might want to return to law school. After graduating LSU with his doctorate, he joined the faculty of the University of Rhode Island as assistant professor. After a year in the northeast, he decided to return to Louisiana to attend LSU law school. He graduated LSU in 1980 and currently practices law in Slidell, Louisiana.
