Tell Us About Your 'My Town Hero'!

Do you know someone in your community who goes above and beyond? Maybe they’re always helping people, or greets everyone with a smile. Perhaps they’ve beat unthinkable odds or have accomplished something exceptional.

We want to highlight them. To have your My Town Hero featured, email the following information to ageswein@thv11.com:

  • Their name,
  • Their hometown,
  • Their contact information,
  • A photo of them, and
  • What makes them extra special

Include “My Town Hero” in the email subject line, and we’ll take care of publishing it for you. Their story might even be told on air by THV11's Denise Middleton.

While a COC is always centered on business and providing its members with multiple networking opportunities, Stephanie also had an extended list of new events coming up in the Russellville area that the city’s residents can enjoy.
