Who will be our next hero?
Newton County is full of everyday people changing and making our community a better place. Those who have worked hard, given back and gone beyond the normal are featured on the pages of The News as "Hometown Hero."
As the 2010 honoree, Kelli Hopkins was presented with the award for her unbreakable will, faith and determination to be the best mother she could be to her four children, three of whom are special needs children with rare medical conditions.
Throughout last year, 10 deserving people with compelling stories were chosen as Hometown Heroes.
Now it's time to vote for the one. The News is asking its readers to chose a winner from the 10 nominees. You can vote by going to www.covnews.com/ hometown/2011.
