Investing in others is an important part of the philosophy at Palmetto57 Auto Group. That’s why when our team learned about Aldo Amenta, we were happy to invest in his future.

Aldo Amenta became quadriplegic after a diving accident in 2015, but continued to pursue his degree from Florida International University’s College of Engineering and Computing. In 2018, he not only graduated, but was able to walk across the stage with the help of a robotic exoskeleton.

After this outstanding achievement, the officials at FIU reached out to Trustee Rogelio Tovar. Tovar worked with his team at Palmetto57 to find a wheelchair accessible van that could meet Amenta’s needs.

Rogelio Tovar stated, “I want to make one thing clear, we aren’t giving anything to Aldo. Aldo is giving us the opportunity to invest in him and his future and that is what we are doing today. Aldo has put himself in this position due to his amazing perseverance and demeanor that shows he is special and shows he will accomplish great things in the future.”
