Known among circles as a ‘real life superhero’, North Omaha counselor and teacher, Chris Wiley touched multiple generations of young people. Mr. Wiley passed away July 2018. In his honor, a scholarship was created by Pastor Michael Williams of Risen Sun Baptist Church.
It was no surprise TyVon Smith was awarded the scholarship at the 2019 African American Leadership Awards Gala sponsored by the Urban League of Nebraska Guild on May 31, 2019.
According to the President/CEO, Thomas H. Warren Sr., TyVon embodies Mr. Wiley’s spirit of giving back to the community through his exemplary leadership. TyVon recently graduated from Omaha North High School and plans to enroll at Ohio State University in the Fall.
