“USA Today” newspaper honored Kenwood High School wrestler Nyonbou Farley with the USA Today Inspiration Award on April 18, 2013.

Sponsored by the National Guard, this award is given to student athletes across the country whose personal courage has enabled them to overcome insurmountable odds -- born leaders who go above and beyond in their communities, and whose loyalty has inspired others to make the most out of every opportunity.

Nyonbou Farley, who is a junior and three year wrestler at Kenwood High, went 34-4 and became Kenwood’s first regional wrestling champion in six years. His contributions on the mat have been matched by his willingness to lead and give back within his community. Nyonbou takes great pride in and believes it is his duty to be a role model and help others who are less fortunate.
