With all of the bad news that’s in this world, we want to honor our Hometown Heroes in the Black Hills and surrounding area. From servicemen & women, first responders, teachers, doctors, if someone you know deserves the title of “Hometown Hero,” we want to hear about them.
Fill out the form below to nominate a Hometown Hero. One individual will be selected each month as our “Hometown Hero,” and for the month of February the recipient will receive a variety of goodies!
Each nomination will be kept on file for 4 months.
Congratulations to Katherine R! She is our January Hometown Hero! She received some goodies too- 2 $10 Klinkeltown Gift Cards, 2 $20 Sears Gift Cards, 1 $50 Bella Tan Gift Card plus a few other treats! Thank you Katherine for being amazing and our Hometown Hero!
Read her nomination-Katherine is a special education teacher in the Rapid City School district that goes above and beyond for her students and colleagues. Katherine is patient, kind, caring, hopeful, encouraging, and devoted to her students. She works hard every day to meet their very demanding needs, always staying positive and cheerful. She also goes out of her way to brighten the days of those around her, giving her time, a kind word, a warm hug, or spontaneous and thoughtful gifts. I hope you will consider Katherine for the Hometown Heroes award, as I can think of no one more deserving.

Congrats to Danielle B. on receiving the November title of Hometown Hero! She received a $50 Gift Certificate to Bella Tan, $120 Stay and Play to Deadwood Gultch, and a $40 N-D-Zine Gift Certificate.
She’s a 27 years young women an outstanding mother of two and an over the top citizen, her profession is working as an EMT with the Spearfish Ambulance, and preparing for paramedic school next year, she’s a volunteer with Lawrence County Search and Rescue, she started a children’s cancer foundation called Connor’s Stand Against Cancer (check it out on Facebook), and in her very limited spare time she makes the most outrageous cakes, art projects, and spends time with her family.
