The winner of the 2012-13 Parents of the Year are Serena and Larry Owen, nominated by Jibril McCaster, a sophomore at NKU.
In his nomination essay, Jibril explained that his parents advocated and sacrificed for his success when others had all but given up. They worked multiple jobs, provided home-schooling, and throughout it all, managed to continue to serve their community. Together, Jibril and his parents have created multiple awards and opportunities for others within the Northern Kentucky region, promoting service, education, and respect for one another. In fact, that’s what the nominator said makes his parents stand out – they are “leaders, educators, and volunteers” who are not only champions for him, but also for our community. Serena and Larry Owen are truly examples of excellence for their support of their son and of our entire region.
