Vancouver, Washington—October 5th, 2021—Northwest Association for Blind Athletes announced today that Robert Stewart has been appointed to the organization’s Board of Directors. Robert is currently the Investment Advisor Representative with CUSO Financial Services & Columbia Credit Union.
“I have a great passion for sports and physical activities in my personal life. Because of this, I want to help provide opportunities to NWABA athletes so they can experience the drive, exhilaration, and confidence that sports and physical activity can have in their lives. I also strongly believe in the mission, vision, and core values of NWABA. Having lived in the Pacific Northwest, and having branched out in areas such as Puget Sound and Boise, I believe in the impact that NWABA’s mission will bring to future athletes across Oregon, Washington, Idaho, and Montana. It’s not just about us in Vancouver; it’s about the whole community. Everyone deserves the opportunity to participate in sports and physical activity.” Said, Robert.
Robert will join other community leaders throughout the region in helping Northwest Association for Blind Athletes achieve its mission of providing life-changing opportunities through sports and physical activity to individuals who are blind and visually impaired.
