Local Heroes

A Local Hero is someone whose volunteer service to others embraces the sense of community, and who has not received an award for this volunteer effort. Local Hero honors people alive or deceased who recognize their responsibility to their community and possess a selfless dedication to the betterment of others and the betterment of our community.

Living in a small town may not seem important to many people but to some, it is their way of life. The time and dedication of humble individuals can make a big difference and go unnoticed in small towns. This would be the case for 86-year-old Rita Carmen Davis who just recently passed away and left the community that she dedicated herself to all her life, vacant.
