SPSU prof. emeritus to be honored posthumously by ISA

The International Society of Automation (ISA) is giving special recognition to the late Prof. Emeritus R. Glenn Allen during its 2012 Automation Week celebration next month in Orlando, Fla. 

At the 50th annual ISA Honors & Awards Reception and Gala on Sept. 24, Allen will posthumously receive the Exceptional Student Mentor Award for his dedication and devotion in the mentoring of students. His widow, Lisa Allen, and their children will be on hand for the presentation.

Allen passed away on April 11, after a hard-fought battle with cancer. He was the founding director of the Mechatronics Engineering program, was one of the original faculty members of the School of Engineering and was SPSU’s 2010-11 Teacher of the Year.

ISA’s Celebrating Excellence Awards honor companies and individuals, both members and non-members, for significant contributions in leadership, technical innovation and contributions to education that have advanced the profession.
