Townsquare Texarkana is declaring May 'Heroes Month' and we want to recognize heroes in our community.

Nurses, Emergency Medical Technicians., doctors, teachers, police, they’re all in the front lines even now more than ever during this time COVID-19, coronavirus. Most times they work in the background simply doing their jobs. But we think now more than ever it’s time to give them the recognition they deserve.

Congratulations to our 'Hero Winners'. Each hero will receive a $100 Visa gift card.

In our medical category our winner is:

Whitney Crosswhite

This is what Nikki had to say about her:

I have never met anyone more fitting for the job of being a nurse and taking care of someone else's sick loved ones. She is such a kind-hearted person and loves every person she comes in contact with. She has the ability to even put a smile on people's faces when they more than likely aren't wanting to smile. She cares so deeply for her patients. She has been taking care of Covid-19 patients with a smile and treating them as if they were one of her family members. Checking in on them even when she isn't at work. God put her here on this earth to be a Nurse. She deserves all the recognition in the world not only for being a nurse but for being the person she is to these patients. I and my family couldn't be more proud to call her ours.

In our teacher category our winner is:

Joann Pappas

Brooke had this to say about Joann;

Mrs. Pappas is by far the most understanding, caring and devoted teacher. She strives to make sure that each and every student is heard. She makes her classroom, online and on campus, a safe place for every student.

In our first responder, police, fire, EMT category, our winner is:

Kristen Coker

Kristen is a police officer for TAPD and an EMT with Lifenet. She is dedicated to helping and serving the people in her community. She always arrives to work early and leaves late. During her training with the Pd she pushed herself to be the best officer she could be, she wouldn’t settle for anything less. Once she sets her mind to something she does whatever it takes to achieve that goal. Her first year as an officer she made the SWAT team, making her the first female to ever be on TAPDs SWAT team.

Congratulations to our 'Heroes Month' winners. They will each receive a 100 gift card as our way of saying thank you. Heroes month is brought to you by Hobbs manufactured homes and Texarkana
