    Holmes Player Stanley Niceley Receives Courage Award

    Stanley Niceley of Holmes H.S. received the Courage award at the NKY All-Star Football game. His life is a lesson in perseverance and placing value on education. He figured the way out of a poverty and a crime-ridden neighborhood is through education. He earned his academic scholarship to Univ. of Louisville where he plans to major in Business Mgmt and then go on to Dental school. I am sure his family, coaches, and teammates are very proud of him. I am sure his grandmother, who was his inspiration, is smiling down on him. Heck, I don't even know this young man and I am proud of him. God's blessings on your future, Young Man!
