Kudos to Glenn Tommie who won the Grider Award at the annual Association for the Education and Rehabilitation of the Blind and Visually Impaired (AER) conference! We all know what a great job he does so we are thrilled to see him be recognized by the people and professionals he works with. The Grider Award is presented to a person who has made a significant contribution in working for persons who are blind or visually impaired to promote an understanding of blindness and visual impairment in the mainstream of society. The recipient of this award must be or have been actively involved in helping persons who are blind or visually impaired have fuller, more meaningful, productive, and independent lives. He or she shall have exemplified the pioneer spirit, dedication to service, and quality of direct services to persons who are blind or visually impaired as shown by the life and reputation of Charles B. Grider.
