Melisa Glenn Melisa Glenn is a resident of Hot Springs, Arkansas. She is a graduate of the University of Arkansas at Little Rock and holds a Bachelor of Arts in History and Secondary Education. After learning about the atrocities of Human Trafficking and realizing the lack of education on what human trafficking is and the impact it has on the community, she began attending conferences and training to become an educator. Her focus is to provide awareness and knowledge for others like herself so that they can become a voice for the voiceless. Melisa serves with Project Hope as chair for the Human Trafficking Task Force of Garland County, whose mission is to “Educate and equip the local community in the efforts against Human Trafficking.” Melisa has spent the past 7 years presenting on Human Trafficking to professional groups, churches, schools and civic organizations providing awareness and resources.
