The Awards Ceremony celebrates high achievements and excellence in the professions. Awards presented this evening include the Honors of the Association—ASHA's most prestigious award, which recognizes lifetime achievement—and ASHA Fellows, whose recipients' contributions are the cornerstones of the communication sciences and disorders (CSD) professions. ASHA will present additional awards to honor other members who have also contributed to the professions and to ASHA. View the 2023 ASHA Awards recipients.
The Annie Glenn Award is also given each year at the Awards Ceremony. Annie Glenn, wife of Senator John Glenn, is known nationwide for her advocacy for those with communication disorders. "The Annie" recognizes an individual who demonstrates Mrs. Glenn's spirit by making a positive impact on those with communication disorders. This beloved award is a perpetual highlight of the ASHA Convention.
We are honored to present the 2023 Annie Glenn Award to Nyle DiMarco, Deaf model, actor, and advocate. He is best known for winning the 22nd season of Dancing With The Stars and the 22nd cycle of America’s Next Top Model, but his work as an ambassador and advocate for the Deaf community demonstrates his commitment to creating a more inclusive and accessible world for those with communication disorders.
Nyle DiMarco's success in the entertainment industry has provided valuable representation for the Deaf community. He is an outspoken advocate for Deaf culture and American Sign Language (ASL) and created the "Nyle DiMarco Foundation" which works to improve the lives of deaf people around the world. Believing that his deafness is “an asset rather than a limitation,” his work continuously strives to build bridges between the deaf and hearing by shining a light on the struggles and triumphs of Deaf culture.
