Constituent Spotlight: Joseph Butler

Joseph Butler

Joseph Butler, the youngest of five children, was born August 5, 1991 at Kings County Hospital in Brooklyn. He has three sisters and one brother, lives with both parents, and is very blessed to belong to a loving and nurturing family. 

Joseph struggled in school, and although he was challenged, he never gave up. His diligent efforts, coupled with the dedication and help of his family, teachers, tutors, and friends, enabled him to graduate on time. His most unusual accomplishment to date is that, since his enrollment in Kindergarten, he has never missed a single day of school! Now having been graduated from High School, Joseph has attended school consecutively for 14 years!

 Joseph is planning on attending his chosen college, and he is aware that he has a difficult road ahead of him. However, he takes his education very seriously and is focused on being a model student. Joseph plans on not missing a single day in college and working hard in order to graduate. In the future, Joseph aspires to play basketball, learn more about computer technology, and become a master chef.

 

Congratulations, Joseph!
