This week’s Hometown Hero is a hero to many in the Middlebury area

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.

This fall, News/Talk 95.3 Michiana’s News Channel and Martin’s Super Markets are teaming up to honor our Hometown Heroes.

Starting now, 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 throughout the week on 95.3 MNC.

We’ll choose one winner a week for seven weeks. All Hometown Heroes will be invited to a breakfast awards ceremony from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. Nov. 2 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 Hometown Hero for the week of October 3 is Roger Copeland:

Listener Randall has written us, saying: 

“Roger Copeland spends most of his time helping others. I don’t know how many lawns he mows, trees he falls and then brings wood to those who need it. He is the most giving man I have ever met. I doubt that there are many in the Middlebury area who he has not affected.”

NOMINATE YOUR HOMETOWN HERO NOW!
