Heroes are all around us every day, like teachers who make learning fun for students and firefighters and police officers who risk their lives for our safety. Even a helpful neighbor who helps out in a pinch is a hero.
Starting now through Oct. 19, we want you to nominate a Michiana resident who you know and consider to be a hero. Submit a photo (if you can) and explain why this person is such a hero in your life.
As we collect submissions, 95.3 MNC’s Mark McGill will choose one Hometown Hero a week and feature their story on Michiana’s Morning News. The chosen heroes will also be featured in a story on 953mnc.com, including the photo that is submitted to us, and on our Facebook and Twitter pages.
We’ll choose one winner a week for eight weeks. All Hometown Heroes will be invited to a breakfast awards ceremony from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. Nov. 4 at Martin’s Super Market at S.R. 23 and Ironwood Drive. Each Hometown Hero will be able to bring up to four guests.
The first nominee will be named the week of Aug. 31 and the last nominee will be named the week of Oct. 19, so make sure you get your submissions in before it’s too late.
If you have any questions, please feel free to send editor Krystal Vivian an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
