Vote For The Duran Group Powered by Epic Realty’s June Hometown Hero
After reading over another great selection of nominees, 95.7 KEZJ has three nominations for you to vote for. Here's some information about our finalists for this month's 2020 Duran Group's Hometown Hero.
Cain McDonald - The person who nominated him says that while Cain is only 12, he is an amazing asset to our community. He has spent the money he earns from 4h and chores to supply the Kindness Cupboard located at the Barber Shop. This young man has gathered blankets, hoodies and food for charity as well and he always asks when he can help fill it again. This awesome kid has a heart of gold.
Rosa Bowman - The person who nominated Rosa says that she has worked in the early childhood and daycare system for the last 20 years. With full daycare centers around the valley, Rosa and her husband decided to purchase a building and run her own daycare. They purchased the house that is now known as Little Leaders Learning Academy on Addison Ave. and five points. It has been a struggle through the COVID 19 outbreak. Rosa decided to remain open for St. Luke's employees who work the front line and have a safe place for their children to attend, following the health department protocols.
Rosa has endured time lost with her own children, financial struggles, and most of all, has stayed strong through the pandemic. Our children have a safe place to go during the hard times.
Velma Anderson - The person who nominated Velma tells us that Velma Anderson doesn’t just have one job, she has many. She is the chef at the Twin Falls Senior Center and she also works with the disabled. If anyone asks for help, Velma will drop whatever she’s doing to help that person out. Velma served up over 200 meals a day through the Senior Center, making sure that our seniors of the Magic Valley are fed. Velma also ran a non-profit for years, filling food boxes for those less fortunate. Velma's nominator goes on to say that she is the most amazing person and everyone who meets her loves her!
