Bob Stohner, a (very active!) lifelong learner, visits the Charlottesville Downtown Mall

Fitness and an active lifestyle make lifelong learning an adventure.

This morning, Bob Stohner, an Idaho, math teacher, visited the downtown mall during his bicycle trip from Boise to Williamsburg.  He is enjoying meeting people along the way and learning more about the places he visits.  We learned a lot just talking with him!

His trip this summer is dedicated to his mother in whose memory he and his siblings have established a scholarship fund.

Next summer I will ride for a dual cause due to my mother’s passing on September 30, 2008. Mom had a wonderful and long life… 91 1/2 years to the day. We should all be so lucky. Mom, like my Dad, loved Williamsburg and William and Mary, but she also loved being a teacher, her chosen passion for 30+ years. During World War II Mom taught at both Irvington High School in Northern New Jersey and Burlington High School in Southern New Jersey. In 1956, she returned to teaching at Moorestown High School her alma mater, my father’s alma mater, and the alma mater of my brother (George), my sister (Judy), and me. She retired from the Moorestown Public School system in 1980.

To honor her memory my brother, sister and I have established the Mildred H. Stohner Memorial Scholarship Fund. All monies contributed to the fund will go directly to promising, needy Moorestown High School graduates who wish to further their education.

You can learn more about Bob and his amazing (to those of us a little less active!) journey at his website, Stones Across America.

Good luck, Bob!
