    I am extremely delighted to read of Gallaudet’s recognition of Glenn’s achievements over these many years. In addition to his many “Firsts”, Glenn was also the first Director for the Programs for Deaf Adults/PDA at LaGuardia Community College/CUNY in New York City. The model he designed still exists today. LaGuardia’s PDA is still strong serving close to 500 deaf and hearing impaired students annually. The PDA remains a shining and positive example of Glenn’s wisdom and extraordinary vision . Congratulations, Glenn, on a well deserved award!
