Missouri Credit Union and KPLA are proud sponsors of the Salute Our Heroes Program. We believe that Central Missouri communities are full of every day heroes that may not get the recognition that they deserve. And we’re out to change that! Take 250 of your best words to nominate your hero below.
Perhaps it's a firefighter, police officer, someone in the military, teacher, co-worker, parent or neighbor—heroes are everywhere. We encourage you to think about the heroes in your life who have these characteristics:
Perform selfless acts to help someone else
Take initiative to solve a problem that helps someone out
Have a positive impact on the people in their communities
Do something great even though they realize that no one may ever know it
Also our hero is courageous, dedicated, and has a fierce determination to make our world a better place. Send in your nomination below!
All nominations will be read, and five finalists will be selected as finalists. KPLA and Hal James will announce the winner during Chris and Monica in the Morning on July 1 on KPLA.
• Hotel room at the Doubletree - July 4th
