John Glenn is one of the most recognized names and public figures in the world, a consequence of his stature as the first American to orbit Earth. That brief event made him a legend, but Glenn’s full career spanned more than seven decades as an aviator, engineer, astronaut, businessman, U.S. Senator, public servant, and educator. Behind the legend was a man devoted to the nation, the American people, and his family – a genial and thoughtful man of good humor, faith, and eloquence. These aspects of Glenn’s life will be remembered in an intimate conversation among a select few speakers who knew him best.
