Each month the Duran Group Powered by Epic Realty awards the Hometown Hero Award that is nominated and voted on by people of the Magic Valley. For the month of July the winner is Khristen Quigley.

According to the nominator Khristen Quigley is an amazing member of our community. She is the owner of Unique Twist Jewelry and makes interesting and, according to Khristen, "snarky" jewelery.

During the struggles of the pandemic, Khristen started the "Be A Good Human Project" where she was able to raise over $30 thousand dollars that all went back to those struggling in the community. That money helped keep businesses in business, helped feed and keep families going and spanned the help from Mini Cassia to the Treasure Valley.

According to the nominate, Khristen is always going above and beyond to help with community events and never looks for recognition while doing so. Thank you for being a true Hometown Hero and congratulations. It is a pleasure to give some recognition to those doing amazing things for our community.

For the month of August we are looking for nominations of teachers who go above and beyond. If you know someone who does great things for the community, nominate them here.
