Sometimes you never know where children may go once they graduate and travel away from Bladen County. One West Bladen High School graduate, Stephen Damasco, is leading the way in physical fitness.

Stephen is 27 years old from Clarkton, NC placed 2nd place in the North Carolina State NPC (National Physique Committee) competition on April 8th for the open Men’s Physique Class A according to Diane Trinidad.

 The competition placement qualifies Stephen to enter for the IFBB (International Federation of BodyBuilding & Fitness) Nationals. His goal is to obtain an IFBB PRO™ card and his ultimate goal is to enter at the Mr. Olympia competition which is also organized by IFBB according to Trinidad.

Stephen is a product of Clarkton School of Discovery and West Bladen High School. He is also a graduate of the Massage Therapy Program at Southeastern Community College in Whiteville.
