Robert Stevenson was not only a talented athlete but also a successful scholar. During his senior year of high school Robert received over 100 full athletic scholarships offers. After careful consideration he chose to attend The Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech) where he obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in Industrial Management.
