Every year during the month of April, the Clinton and Highland County Office of the American Red Cross has the privilege of hosting the annual Heroes Awards Breakfast, a community celebration honoring local individuals whose extraordinary acts or efforts lead to saving or improving lives in Clinton or Highland County, made a difference or impact on another person or the community, committed a selfless act with no expectation of recognition, or is distinguished in their occupation or field of interest.
Time: Doors open at 7 a.m. Program starts at 7:30 a.m.
Guest speaker: Daniel Hernandez, Jr.
Daniel Hernandez Jr., 22, is a Tucson native and a graduate at the University of Arizona with a degree in Political Science. He was a congressional intern for the office of Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords of Arizona’s Eighth Congressional District and while on the job assisting Congresswoman Giffords with a constituent event in Tucson on January 8, 2011, Daniel took actions for which he is widely credited with saving the life of the congresswoman after a gunman shot her and 18 other people. His medical training, quick thinking, and brave actions on that day have caused him to be celebrated as a true American hero, although he humbly rejects the title.
