BCCC’s first hired instructor recalls early years at Bucks

by June Portnoy

Glenn Hall has the unique designation of being the first instructor hired to work at Bucks County Community College at a time when most residents in this area had no idea what a community college was. When he accepted the job offer, he never imagined that he would ultimately retire from this college 35 years later.

Glenn, born in York County, received his bachelor’s degree in social science from Lebanon Valley College and his master’s degree in history from George Washington University. He began his career in a one-room classroom in York County teaching 52 students in grades one through eight.

After teaching in the junior and senior high schools at York Suburban High School, he and his wife, Gloria, moved to St. Augustine, Florida where he taught history and geography at the St. Johns River Community College in Palatka, Florida. Glenn joined the faculty in 1959, the second year of the college’s existence.
