10TV VIDEO VAULT: John Glenn's Mother Honored


UPDATED: Thursday May 8, 2014 3:00 PM

The 10TV Video Vault takes us back to 1962 when Clara Sproat Glenn was named Ohio Mother of the Year.

John Glenn's mother was honored the same year that her son became the first American to orbit the Earth.

This throw back video is fun to watch for several reasons.

Not only do you get to hear words of wisdom from Clara, you get to see how the creative rocket cake almost went up in flames during the ceremony.
