Damon Parker has gone above and beyond to inspire kids! Our anonymous nominator said:
“It takes a village, and this man right here is the epitome of what any parents would be so lucky to leave our sons or daughters, with for 40 hours + a week/and during wrestling season from November to February every Saturday including holiday break, time away from his own family. The coach for Washburn High School Wrestling. This man shows his passion for our kids everyday and to hear him talk about your kids as if they were one his own speaks on so many levels. We as parents try to lead them and take responsibilities for themselves, and he takes that and emphasizes it that much more.
He makes our kids Find A WAY to believe in themselves. He builds confidence, structure. Helping us Build Boys to MEN!!!”
Parker also won the Centennial’s Coach of the Year award. He is known for his dedication to building up the kids he works with using encouragement and teaching them to be proud of themselves even when they feel they failed. He also encourages older students to guide and help younger students in schooling and wrestling. Parker has shown strong leadership and continues to work hard to make a difference in the lives of the kids he works with.
