Paralyzed Veterans of America Welcomes New Leadership Member
(7 months ago)
WASHINGTON: Paralyzed Veterans of America (Paralyzed Veterans) today announced it has named Army Sergeant Shaun Castle as National Deputy Executive Director.
A Paralyzed Veterans' member since 2014, Castle has been a key contributor to Paralyzed Veterans' adaptive sports programs and stakeholder outreach efforts. He has also been actively involved in advocacy for the disabled community in his home state of Alabama.
"I'm honored to have this opportunity to take my experience as a Paralyzed Veterans' member and my knowledge as an advocate and give back to the organization that has made such an impact on the lives of veterans with spinal cord injury or disease," said Castle. "For more than 70 years, the veterans who have served in leadership roles here have strived to improve their own lives, the lives of their families, the lives of the greater disability community, and the lives of future generations of men and women who wore the uniform and now carry on with life-altering injuries. I am humbled to continue their legacy, and I intend to work side-by-side with the other Paralyzed Veterans leaders to ensure their important work has broader awareness."
Recently graduating summa cum laude from the University of Alabama, Castle intends to focus on expanding external communications and outreach efforts, particularly by leveraging the participation and public awareness garnered by adaptive sports and recreation. Castle begins serving full-time at the national office today.
