Congrats to Damon Hickok our February member of the month! Damon is one awesome guy and it’s guaranteed a fun time when he is in class. He always has something funny to add to class, and gives his best in every class. Damon has been an athlete his whole life, and has an extremely talented daughter and son that are dominating their high school sporting careers. He’s not only a good role model to his kids but also his students, showing up to class and putting in the work. Thanks Damon for being a radical addition to the PDXstrength tribe!
