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 10 is Bryant Haist:
Listener Tiffani has written us, saying:
“Bryant is an amazing man that I was able to walk alongside with during my middle school years as he was head coach at my middle school for Five Star Life. Bryant would encourage me weekly and push me to do better for myself regardless of where I came from. Fast forward 8 years now I am actually a co worker of Bryant’s and we now serve alongside each other making the same mentoring and servant leadership go full circle. Bryant is a great guy, leader and wonderful father and husband to his two boys and his wife. Regardless of your background or your circumstance Bryant will always try to help you even if it means taking the shirt off his back. Everyone needs a hometown hero like Bryant.”
