Curt J. Landtroop, ‘73 has received the 2015 President’s Leadership Award from Guiding Eyes for the Blind, a New York-based guide dog school. The award honors someone who has shown great dedication to furthering the Guiding Eyes’ mission, and forging connections between people and service dogs.
The organization honored Landtroop’s service with an award plaque inscribed in Braille accompanied by a photo of him and his guide dog, Windsor, which will remain on display at the school’s Alumni Hall.
Landtroop has been involved with the nonprofit for more than 40 years, first as a guide dog user and later a board member, he said in a Yorktown-Somers Patch article. He previously served as vice chair and treasurer on the Guiding Eye’s board of directors.
The business administration grad contributed his professional expertise to the nonprofit, according to the Patch story. Outside of his work with Guiding Eyes, Landtroop served as the fixed income portfolio manager for General Motors Asset Management Corporation.
“I have been able to seek and attain my dreams and goals because of the freedom and confidence I gained from having Guiding Eyes guide dogs,” Landtroop said in accepting the award.
