What Disability? The Life of Robert

Posted on July 10, 2015

Written by Shane, Penn-Mar Staff and friend to Robert

Robert recently tested for the 3rd time for his 4th degree black belt.  You must complete six different test every six months to be awarded each belt. The test recently completed by Robert was breaking a cement block with his fist.

Robert came to Penn Mar in 1998 and resides at ALU 2. Robert has been a full-time employee at Graul’s Market for over six years an loves his job. Robert is a 3rd degree belt and has been studying Tae Kwon Do for over 13 years and has no plans on quitting any time soon.

Robert has a few other interests like skydiving…yes jumping out of airplanes. He has done this twice with a third time to be done this summer. He enjoys watching NASCAR and recently went to Dover, Delaware to see a race.

Robert has been an inspiration to me and many others.  He has not allowed his disabilities to hold him down. We all need to approach life this way. Never let anything or anyone restrict us from having goals and working to complete them.
