PEEKSKILL, N.Y. -- Glenn Guzi of Peekskill has been named an honorary member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire, a distinction that rewards arts, science and public service contributions, according to lohud.com.
Guzi, 47, has hosted the British royal family at the World Trade Center for the past 15 years as a program director for the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.
His efforts began in 1990 when Guzi met Prince Charles and Princess Diana in London when he was studying abroad. When Princess Anne, the queen's daughter, toured the World Trade Center years later Guzi was her guide, according to lohud.com.
Guzi worked in Tower One at the time of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks but by chance took that day off. Doing his tours, he would go on to meet numerous world leaders and most of the British family, according to lohud.com.
