Halifax Community College (HCC) is proud to announce the first Presidential Lecture Series event of the 2019-2020 academic year.
On Oct. 10, at 11 a.m., Bettye Glenn will be on campus.
Glenn was working for the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey on Sept. 11, 2001.
Her office, located on the 43rd floor of the World Trade Center, had always been a place of comfort. On that day, and forever after, that comfort was gone.
Glenn will tell her story of courage in the face of fear, and hope in the face of heartbreak.
She lost 75 colleagues and friends that day.
She can still remember the firefighters running up the stairs as she and her fellow tower workers were trying to run down.
Since her retirement, Glenn has moved to Fayetteville, where she still honors the memory of those lost on that fateful day. HCC invites the community to come hear her story – and to never forget.
Glenn will be in The Griffin Centre at 11 a.m. on Oct. 10. The event is free and open to the public.
