GSCC Cardinal Foundation Hosts Everyday Heroes Breakfast
A local community college held an award ceremony earlier today to honor “Everyday Heroes” in our communities. Gadsden State Community College’s Cardinal Foundation hosted its third annual “Everyday Heroes” Breakfast at the One Stop Center on the East Broad Street Campus.
During this breakfast, five honorees were recognized and celebrated for their positive work in the communities across Etowah, Cherokee, and Calhoun Counties. These everyday heroes are people who do things out of the ordinary, which makes them special to the community they serve.
Honorees mentioned were Marily Burke who is the special education supervisor for the Oxford City Schools. Cotina Houston-Stroud, Executive Director of Family Links in Calhoun County. Joe Hall- Volunteer Coordinator of the Baptist Campus Ministry at Gadsden State Cherokee. Gaston Elementary School Counselor, Heath McLeod. And Joe Simmons, who is the pastor at New Liberty Tabernacle of Praise in Etowah County. All five honorees were nominated from someone in their community and during the awards breakfast, the person that nominated them, also awarded them.
Other nominees tell TV24 they are humbled to be seen as heroes within their communities while also doing something they love.
