Cary Sharber

Cary Sharber stands in front of Challenge House 7 on Phelps Avenue where he has been named ambassador. As ambassador of CH7, Sharber will be tasked with offering community outreach programs and events to bring his neighbors together.

The leader of last summer's community dance craze "The Southside Challenge" and the 2018 recipient of the Mayor's Unity Award has been named the next ambassador of Challenge House 7.

Cary Sharber, 40, Hopkinsville, will live in the house at 1605 Phelps Avenue, where he will be able to host community outreach programs and events.

"I thank God for this opportunity and I thank the Challenge House for giving me this opportunity to take over as the ambassador of a Challenge House," he said. "My slogan is 'You can't spell community without unity,' and if we're all living together in what we call a community, that means we need to come together and help one another."

Members of the Challenge House board made the announcement Thursday in front of media at the house, which happens to be the largest Challenge House of the seven around town.

"He loves the idea that you cannot have unity without community, and that is what Challenge House is all about," said Michelle Wilson, Challenge House spokeswoman.

Sharber is a native of Hopkinsville and a father.
