Quemeul Arroyo is a 20 year old who was severely handicapped in a biking accident in 2007. He is now wheelchair bound but thanks to the ChairScholars
Foundation, and a chance meeting with NY Chapter President Andrew Fox, Arroyo is now a full time NYU student with a bright future.
After Arroyo met Fox, the CEO of Track Entertainment, at the hospital he was encouraged to apply for the ChairScholars Foundation N.Y. scholarship. He
won, and is now a full time NYU sophomore, studying Urban Planning, and living at the dorm that once housed the Palladium.
Fox became involved in this cause in particular, as he believes that higher education is the most vital link to economic stability and self-sufficiency for the severely physically disabled. An astonishing three out of every four children with a physical disability can't go to college or vocational school due to the financial burden of their disability.
