It is with mixed emotions that we announce the retirement of Glenda Harrison, Advocacy Director of Legal Aid of the Bluegrass. During her 42 + years with us she has made countless contributions to the organization and to the most vulnerable in our community. While we are saddened to lose her leadership, we celebrate her efficacious career and unwavering dedication to our clients.
Glenda will continue her work to advocate for those who are in greatest need of legal help in her new role with the Kentucky Access to Justice Commission overseen by Supreme Court Justice Michelle Keller. Her support for and personal experience with Kentucky’s Civil Legal Aid Programs make her a great fit for this position. “There is no better person in the Commonwealth than Glenda to lead this effort” says LABG Executive Director, Joshua Crabtree. She will undoubtedly continue being a champion for Kentucky’s most vulnerable citizens.
Her accomplishments are too many to mention. As a lawyer she has made genuine impact in individual clients’ lives and systemic changes that improve the lives of many. As a mentor she has empowered others but most importantly she has imparted a passion to fight injustice.
