A local high school student has been chosen to be in the final dozen candidates for the National High School Rudy Award.   We first told you about Bend High junior Kenny Daily a couple of weeks ago, being in the running for the High School Rudy Award. The award is given to that student who demonstrates exemplary values in life that inspired others to overcome obstacles. Bend Athletic Director Craig Walker says Daily has very much earned the respect of his peers: "His teammates know where he comes from. And his teammates know and they know there's no baloney going on there. And so when Kenny speaks, they know its from the heart and they listen, primarily because he’s really honestly talking from a place he's been and they get that." Walker says Daily's story is one that is very inspirational. For years his family was homeless, living in the outdoors then in a hotel until his mother was able to find work and get permanent housing. You can help Daily win the award, as it is an internet voting contest. You can read all about Kenny and vote for him at the High School Rudy Award website: Rudy Awards.
