Local dad named Father of the Year
In case you somehow forgot, this Sunday is Father’s day; but last night one Kansas dad got to celebrate Father’s day a little early.
This year marks the 19th year of the National Centering for Fathering essay contest. Nominated by children, the essay contest honors fathers, grandfathers, and role models for their life-long impacts made on children’s life and to the community.
Just before the start of the Royals game yesterday, Steve Huff of Topeka received the top honor of the Kansas City Father of the Year.His son, Braxton Huff of Perry-Lecompton High School, wrote an essay about why his dad is the greatest.
