Glassboro High closes for Corey Clement Day
GLASSBORO - Pride is overflowing at Glassboro High for Corey Clement — a graduate and now Super Bowl winner.
The school district is shutting down Thursday as a nod to the Super Bowl-winning Philadelphia Eagles running back they watched grow up on the high school's Bowe Boulevard football field.
Superintendent Mark Silverstein declared Thursday, Feb. 8, Corey Clement Day.

The declaration — and day off so school-age Eagles fans in the borough can make the Super Bowl parade in Philadelphia — comes a week after the district threw pep rallies for Clement at all of its schools.
Before Clement, 23, wore No. 30 for the Philadelphia Eagles, he was the pride of Glassboro High, wearing No. 6 for the maroon and gold Bulldogs.
Clement grew up in Glassboro and graduated from Glassboro High in 2013.
