The American Red Cross Heartland Chapter wants to hear from people who know of local residents who have performed acts of heroism in the past year, worthy of recognition as “Heartland Heroes.” The annual recognition program, now in its sixth year, recognizes local heroes in categories including community service, youth, senior, law enforcement, military, medical, workplace, fire and rescue, and animal heroes. A category also exists for heroes from the American Red Cross.

“When we think of heroes, we tend to think of people who have taken heroic measures to save a life,” says event chairperson Carol Russell, “but heroes are also those who change lives by their constant example, their commitment, or their tireless work for the benefit of others.”

Nominations will be accepted through July 1, 2005, with winners honored at the Heroes in the Heartland breakfast September 21, 2005 at the Scott Conference Center.

Sponsors of the 2005 Heroes in the Heartland competition are First National Bank of Omaha, Union Pacific and Mutual of Omaha
