Robert Hendershot has been a manufacturers' representative in the electronics industry for more than 35 years. He and his wife, Melissa, have three sons, Trevor, Taylor and Tanner. Trevor, who has Down syndrome, was hired by Major League Baseball's Los Angeles Angels in 2012, and then by the National Hockey League's Anaheim Ducks in 2013, to serve as greeter at their team stores. He has since become widely known, admired and loved by countless sports fans. The MLB Commissioner is considering a proposal to "Trevorize" every stadium by having every MLB team hire individuals with Down syndrome to work as greeters in their team stores. Robert, Trevor and their family are also forming a non-profit corporation, Angels for Higher, to help facilitate the employment of individuals with Down syndrome in sports stadiums across America.
