Community Hero Defined
Community heroes are inspiring individuals who offer their selflessness, strength and self-sacrifice in the service of those around them. They are agents of change who positively benefit others that may not know them by name but who will also reap the rewards of their work. The community heroes honored here are as diverse as the communities they represent.
