Troy Wohosky

Troy Wohosky started Spartan Boxing in 2012. He is a husband, father of two, coach, motivational speaker and professional boxer. Troy was born in the Philippines, moving to the US at 7yrs old. He was a promising fighter by age 9 but a few years later his life took a turn. He dropped out of school, became affiliated with gangs and ran into trouble with the law.

At the young age of 15 he and his girlfriend (now wife), Rheanna, conceived their first child. Troy wanted a better life for his son, Lokai. In order to be successful he had to leave his troubled life behind. He focused instead on boxing and soon became one of the country’s top boxers, ranked #3 in the nation. Troy has traveled all over the world competing, including a tour with Team USA Boxing. He has an impressive boxing record with 87 amateur wins, 20 by knockout, and 17 losses. His professional record is 2-1. Troy has a deep rooted desire to steer troubled youth in the
right direction.

 

 

Troy’s Monday Session:

Federal and State Funding Shifts: What Nonprofits Need to Know

Government budgets are shrinking at every level. The first sweeping changes to federal tax laws have passed and the federal budget has been negotiated. The flow of funding to nonprofits is changing. As the past reveals, when public funds shrink, nonprofits are asked to do both more with less, acquiring greater caseloads and amped up requirements for performance. More will be expected from nonprofit leaders to deliver effective and efficient programs as entrenched social, economic and environmental issues grow in our society. During this session, we will explore opportunities and challenges brought on by the changes in public sector funding and review opportunities for nonprofits as they navigate through this changing environment.
