Romero's old wheelchair was breaking down, but his parents couldn't afford to replace it.
Zindler came through.
Romero thought of Zindler as he graduated and as he prepares for the next phase of his life.
"He helped me a lot during the time I needed the most help. I always like to remember the people who helped me," Romero said.
Romero plans to attend Houston Community College then transfer to the University of Houston. He wants to study computer engineering and software programming.
