Everyday Heroes of Northeast Iowa
Dupaco, The American Red Cross of Northeast Iowa, KWWL and Radio Dubuque stations (1370 KDTH, 92.9 KAT-FM, 101.1 The River and 97.3 The Rock) are proud to announce the 15th annual Everyday Heroes of Northeast Iowa recognition program.
The following Everyday Heroes were selected by an independent committee and honored by The Red Cross of Northeast Iowa at a breakfast event held March 16, 2017:
What Qualifies Someone as an Everyday Hero? Everyday Heroes are nominated by their peers to be recognized for going above and beyond in service to others. An Everyday Hero is someone who has made a difference in any of the following categories: Animal Rescue, Education, Fire & Rescue, Good Samaritan (youth), Good Samaritan (adult), Health Care, Law Enforcement, Military, Professional Responder, Volunteer Community Impact or Workplace Safety. An act of heroism does not need to involve the direct saving of a life.
Nominations for the 2018 Everyday Heroes recognition are now being accepted.
An independent selection committee will select the award winners in February of 2018, and a public breakfast will be held to honor all Heroes at a date yet to be determined.
