Heroes Among Us - Volunteer Edition

Posted: Apr. 23, 2013 5:16 pm Updated: Jul. 23, 2013 4:15 pm

Volunteers typically go above and beyond to help their cause, whatever it might be. Many volunteers work behind the scenes without any recognition.

The Herald-Whig is creating a special publication to honor members of our local communities who make differences in many ways. We are asking our readers to submit the names of people who have given selflessly to causes — delivering meals, traveling to disasters, helping with church-related projects, people who help in local classrooms, giving cheer to patients in a hospital or nursing home, volunteer coaches — and usually receive little more than a handshake, a pat on the back or a hug in return.

Please take a moment to fill out this form and tell us why a volunteer you know should be recognized in print and online by The Herald-Whig.

All nominations must be made by 8 a.m. on Monday, May 20.

In Case You Missed It

'There's always going to be that hole': North Shelby football team playing through pain of losing teammate, classmate
The North Shelby community was rocked when four students were in a car crash on Sept. 24. North Shelby student Joshua Kennison was pronounced dead at the scene, while freshman football player Jakob Pratt died Oct. 11. The Raiders know it is a journey to move past the tragedy that struck their community over the last month, but they know they can do things to help the process.
