The recipients will exhibit similar determination and kindness as Glory.  Glory was known as a very kind and thoughtful person. However, she always stood up for what she wanted and was very competitive.   She was a BSME graduate of Rutgers University, the only female in her graduating class.  As part of that class she was selected to join a National Student Competition Team.  They designed and flew a small plane utilizing a VW engine they rebuilt.  They took 1st place in the competition beating MIT.  She was the first female to join the GE Industrial Turbine Technical Marketing team.  A position she was first told was not  “proper” for a woman.  She continued a very varied career at several large and small companies, including starting her own franchise business.  Of a group of over a dozen, Glory was the only franchise to last more than a year and the only one to be profitable.  She was also the director of a local town Arts Council.  She ended her career to take care of her mom who became a widow and eventually suffered from Alzheimer’s.  Glory always remembered the strong role God played in her successes, connecting and giving back through her involvement with various church charities and groups.
