Tech alumni to be honored

MONTGOMERY — West Virginia University Institute of Technology recently announced the 2012 Alumni of the Year: Dr. Scott Glenn, Class of 1999, from the College of Business, Humanities and Social Sciences, and Gene Morgan, Class of 1991, from the Leonard C. Nelson College of Engineering and Sciences.

The two will be honored as Alumni of the Year honorees at a banquet Friday, Oct. 26 in the Tech Center Ballroom.

Glenn, a native of Pottstown, Pa., received his Regents Bachelor of Arts degree from WVU Tech in 1999. He also holds a master’s degree in business administration and a doctorate degree in education.

During his years at Tech, Glenn was a member of the Golden Bears football team and holds the university record as WVU Tech’s all-time leading rusher. He was inducted into the WVU Tech Hall of Fame in 2009.

He has also served in the United States Marine Corps.

Glenn’s professional career has included coach, counselor and author. His most recent book, entitled “The Triangle Plan: A Guide to a Successful Life Derived from Personal Experience,” was published in 2011 with proceeds being donated to WVU Tech Athletics.

A native of West Virginia, Morgan is a 1991 graduate of Tech with a degree in mechanical engineering.

Upon graduation he joined the Westinghouse Electric’s Power Generator Service Division as a field service engineer. During his more than 10-year career in field service engineering, he has worked in 30 states and 11 countries.

He has been the co-recipient of two U.S. patents, both of which were developed as service solutions to address consumer needs.

Morgan is now the director of field service marketing at Siemens Energy, Inc. in Orlando, Fla. He also currently serves on the WVU Tech Mechanical Engineering Industry Advisory Board.

Since 1949, it has been an institutional tradition to honor the Tech Alumni of the Year during Homecoming weekend. To be selected for this honor, alumni must have achieved recognition in their chosen profession, have strong service commitment, and have given time, talent, and treasure to Tech by serving as a role model of loyalty and service for all alumni.

Glenn and Morgan will be recognized as the newest members of this distinguished group at the Alumni of the Year banquet in the Tech Center Ballroom. To purchase tickets to the banquet call the Office of Alumni Relations at 304-442-3131.
