Champion Damon Cobble
Damon Cobble uses his personal journey to help motivate and inspire the young people he counsels in his role as a licensed mental health counselor at Seneca High School in Louisville.
Cobble experienced life 'in the trenches' at a young age. As an underprivileged youth himself, he grew up in a single-parent household, with limited income and resources in a rough part of town. These are some of the factors which molded his character, resolve, outlook and determination, leading to his commitment to become a positive role model in his community.
Along the way, Cobble has served as a Jefferson County Deputy Sheriff, earned a BA in Psychology and a Master’s of Science in Counseling.
He has dedicated much of his life to the well-being of his community through volunteerism, application of therapeutic skills, and collaboration with public school systems and law enforcement, and he continually seeks to better the community through individual personal efforts.
"It’s truly a blessing and an opportunity to talk to someone as wonderful as Mr. Cobble," says DJ, a senior at Seneca HS. "When it comes down to speaking with people, not too many people are going to get as deep as Mr. Cobble."
