THE STORY:

In certain parts of Maryland, kids had to be tough, had to be able to defend themselves as a matter of survival. Frank Gibson hails from those parts of Old Line State where he grew up cheering for local legend Sugar Ray Leonard and picked up boxing as a teen so he could get by.

Fast forward to today and you'll find Gibson is a spiritually fueled and driven individual who serves as a role model and leader to his Church in Maryland.

They say hard work pays off and Frank is guy who takes that one to heart. Nine years ago he was in a devastating car accident that left him with a shattered leg among many other injuries. His prognosis was bleak, doctors telling him he'd never again be able to participate in the athletic pursuits he held so dear.

Life had dealt him a pretty mean hand but fighting back has always been in Frank's blood. This was a turning point and with a powerful punch he accepted life's challenge. In a poetic twist, the accident was actually what brought him back into the ring as he found his way to a local boxing gym in order to get the arduous work of beating the odds under way.

Training hard, often 4 times a week Frank rebuilt himself from the ground up, noting his legs are better and stronger than ever before.

As a pastor, it's important for Gibson to lead by example in everything he does, aside from the grit, will and determination he put on display for all by recovering fully from his injuries, he's created many outreach programs within his community. Programs which work to help every cross section of society, be it after school programs for children of all ages to helping rehabilitate those folks who are incarcerated. Clearly his roots run deep in Maryland as he's devoted his life to those he serves there.

He believes actions speak louder than words and his journey thus far has been one filled with its fair share of trials and tribulations that put his credo to the test. Ultimately Frank has come out on top and reached his goals through his actions. It's all led him cite his greatest achievement, beautiful in its simplicity, as; gaining an ability to maintain positivity. Positivity in every situation, be it at a personal level or as a leader in his community.

A truly powerful agent of change, he feels blessed to open his eyes every day and rise to his true purpose of serving others.
