Local Heroes 

Last year, after resurrecting the Local Heroes issue, BW selected a small group of individuals to honor. We selected an arts educator, a health care provider, an athlete, an environmentalist a pair of animal rescue advocates and all of Idaho’s soldiers as a group. This year, we tried to be just as diverse in our selections. While we kept our eyes out all year long for worthy candidates, we also opened it up to nominations. Here, we present even more people who devote their lives to others. They give of themselves out of a simple desire to help, and not help themselves. They are passionate about improving our quality of life and protecting it. Many in this community are worthy of thanking; here are but a few.
