Sen. John Glenn and his beloved wife Annie visited the ASHA national office in June for a ceremony to unveil the Annie Glenn Award that will be displayed permanently at ASHA’s office. The award, known as the “Annie,” has been presented since 1987 to individuals who demonstrate tremendous strength and use that strength to benefit others (see story). The permanent display honors Annie Glenn’s strong support and advocacy on behalf of ASHA, its members, and individuals with communication disorders. An individual who has dealt with stuttering for most of her life, Annie Glenn credits speech-language pathologists for her ability to speak fluently, and has emerged as a national advocate. Shown in the photo above in front of the “Annie” display case in the national office lobby are (from left), ASHA President Tommie Robinson Jr., ASHA Executive Director Arlene Pietranton, Annie Glenn, and Sen. John Glenn.
