and the winner is?

Dwight Johnson
Mr. Johnson spent forty-two years installing and designing glass for high rise towers. Dwight spent time in the design phase with some of the most prominent architects in the world. The jobs that Mr. Johnson worked on included Burj Khalifa in Dubai (the tallest building in the world); Freedom Towers in New York City; 475 Park Avenue South in Manhattan; Red Building and Center Green Buildings, Pacific Design Center, West Hollywood.

Dwight?s life changed drastically with the loss of his legs in two different industrial accidents. He has had to learn how to walk all over again. Since Dwight is not one to sit around and feel sorry for himself, he now has water legs for surfing and blades for running. Dwight is currently training to climb Mount Ranier.

Dwight is a shining example of when something awful happens to you, don?t sit around and feel sorry for yourself. Have the inner strength and will to not only continue to live and to thrive, but to be an inspiration to others.

Dwight counts his blessings every day, including his lovely wife of 37 years; 7 fantastic children; and 4 grandchildren. Dwight?s goal is to see everyone with prosthetics continue their lives as normal as possible.

Thank you Dwight, for continually reminding me and those of us at WorkCompCentral, to make every day the best day ever!
