Nominations for Hometown Hero awards being sought

The Idaho’s Hometown Hero Organization Committee would like to know, “Who is
your hero?”

The JRM Foundation for Humanity has begun taking nominations for the 2015 Idaho’s Hometown Hero Medal. Established in 2011, the medal pays tribute to those who show unique characteristics, achievements and commitment to creating better, safer communities across the state of Idaho.

This year's theme is "Empowering Women,” and the selection committee is seeking to honor men, women and youth who are serving and making a difference in the lives of women.

The Idaho’s Hometown Hero Medal was founded by Drs. Fahim and Naeem Rahim and is sponsored by the JRM Foundation for Humanity, a not-for-profit organization.

The selected medalists will be honored at the 5th Annual Idaho Hometown Hero Awards Ceremony and Gala Celebration, Sept. 12 at the Stephens Performing Arts Center in Pocatello.

Nominations will be accepted through Aug. 10. Visit the JRMFoundation.org Web site for more information or to make your nomination.
