Beating the Odds Foundation presented a Quarterbacks of Life® assembly for one hundred (100) 5th – 8th-grade students of Altoona Central Catholic Middle School.

Adam Taliaferro, former PSU football player, who serves as a Quarterback of Life® for Beating the Odds Foundation; and Rocco Scalzi, Founder and President of Beating the Odds Foundation spoke to the students about their own personal stories of overcoming adversity and how to apply the Stepping Stones to Success (motivational tools) to achieve their dreams. Students had a chance to ask Adam questions. The school was given a signed print of Miracle in the Making

This is the third year that these middle school students have been participating in the Quarterbacks of Life® Student Success and Leadership Program. The program is made possible through the Central Pennsylvania Community Foundation, Walmart, and U.S. Foods (Altoona Division).
