Glendora was born in a Christian village in North India. She came to the United States on a Fulbright grant and studied at Washington University. When she returned to India to teach in an international school in the South, she continued to seek God’s guidance for her life. Later she came back to the U.S. and earned her master’s degree from Pittsburgh Seminary followed by her doctorate at the University of Pittsburgh. Both Glendora and her late husband, Prodeep, became naturalized U.S. citizens.
In recognition of her dedication to the Seminary, Glendora was honored with the Distinguished Alumna Award and the John Anderson Award of Merit, the Seminary’s highest honor.
