NSA Member Philip Garber Takes a Stand to Have His Voice Heard

Philip Garber Jr photo, NSA member Philip Garber Jr, 16-year old student at County College of Morris (NJ), fellow stutterer and NSA member was urged not to speak in class by his professor, adjunct Elizabeth Snyder. Despite once keeping his hand raised for an entire 75-minute session, Prof. Snyder did not call on him. Afterward, she e-mailed Philip, suggesting that he send his questions before or after class, in the interest of the other students' time.
