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, 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.”
