Meet Michael Robinson, USA Scholarship winner
Mr. Michael Robinson, son of Michael Robinson of Glaziers Local 252, was awarded the 2015 Union Services Access Scholarship. Michael, currently an economics major at Fordham University, was a very involved student at Scranton Preparatory School both academically and socially. He achieved the highest average in three of his classes and earned first honors 14 times. As a dedicated seven-year Eagle Scout, he was selected to the Order of the Arrow, the Scouts’ honors society.
Michael participated in many athletics, and was a member of the track and field team, cross-country team and swim team. In his application essay, Michael described the personally rewarding experience of volunteering as a Special Olympics swim instructor. Every Sunday, Michael heads to the pool at 5 a.m. to train a Special Olympics athlete.
“I take [my role as a coach] very seriously because I believe I am supporting a positive experience for the 10-year old boy I assist. He has a great affinity for the water.”
