Posted on 6/2/2016

Raycom’s CBS affiliate KFVS-TV Cape Girardeau, Mo. honored 12 local “Everyday Heroes” at the 3rd annual honors banquet on June 9. One “hero” is selected from viewer nominations each month and is profiled in a local newscast and honored at the annual banquet. This year’s heroes make a difference through their work in domestic violence, elderly care, special needs children, holiday toy drives, childhood obesity and caring for veterans. The banquet also raised $30,000 for the local Red Cross. “The presentations are special and emotional for these heroes who go about doing wonderful things for their communities, without wanting recognition,” said KFVS Director of Marketing Paul Keener. “By honoring these volunteers, we hope to inspire others to become everyday heroes in their communities.”
