Dion Earns Fourth Degree Blackbelt

Did you know that our residents participate in an adapted #karate program in partnership with Quest Karate of Long Valley?

We are proud to announce that Dion “Primetime” recently earned his fourth degree black belt! He used his karate skills to defend against other karate students and even learned a new skill using a bow staff. Dion has been a participant of the adapted karate program at Matheny for the past 14 years. He always gives 110% at every class and is dedicated, motivated, and on a quest to be his best thanks to the guidance of Mr. Tom Kately and the students at the school. Way to go, Primetime!

Happy New Year!
