Monroe-Woodbury Central School District families are invited to attend a free presentation by nationally recognized youth speaker Rohan Murphy on Wednesday, January 9th at 7 p.m. in the High School Auditorium. 

Murphy was one of the more than 100 speakers who were part of the M-W CARES Day in October. He has also presented to M-W Middle School students. 

Murphy's life story is a gripping tale of adversity, dedication and living life with a purpose.

Murphy, who lost his legs at birth, started to wrestle his freshman year of High School. After a successful High School wrestling career, he went on to wrestle at Penn State University. 

In addition to wrestling, Murphy is also an accomplished powerlifter, representing the USA in international competitions all over the world. 

The M-W CARES Committee is proud to present Rohan Murphy as part of its continued commitment to raising awareness of Compassion, Acceptance, Respect, Empowerment and Success.
