MOUNT VERNON — The Knox County Chapter of the American Red Cross presented the Heroes of 2013 at this morning’s annual Heroes Breakfast. Held at Lakeholm Church of the Nazarene, the event is also one of the Red Cross’ annual fundraisers. The sale of the breakfasts and $2,000 donations from the sponsors help the Red Cross serve the local community.
There were 10 heroes this year because an Agriculture Award was added to the award categories. The 10 heroes are Melody Brent, Leroy Bumpus, Denise Conway, Matt Dailey, Abby Hamman, Bob Hudson, Deborah McLarnan, Zach Wall, Jerry Scott and Tom Staats.
