Local Heroes 2008

A tribute to the people who enrich our lives in Headwaters.

November 18, 2008 | | Back Issues | Community | Local Heroes | Winter 2008

An embarrassment of riches. Having now spent quite awhile pondering this topic, we can tell you that there are so many heroes in our hills, it’s pretty well impossible to select just a few – and it’s likely everyone’s selection would be different. That being said, these folks are a mind-blowing group. The collection of talent, courage, determination and commitment that appears in these pages will take your breath away. A warning, though: it may also be a little unsettling. Whether it’s Dr. David Scott’s gentle wisdom, gleaned from more than six decades of community service, the commitment to change displayed by the Crandall sisters, the ultimate sacrifice of Corporal Matt McCully, or any of the other extraordinary people profiled here, it’s hard not to come away questioning your own contribution to the hills we call home.  For us anyway, maybe that’s not such a bad thing. Think of it as inspiration.
