Earlier this year, New Mexico Magazine, New Mexico True and KOB 4 asked for True Hero nominations from the public. The goal was to find and recognize ten individuals helping their communities—and our state-- in exceptional ways.
The ten winners, chosen by a panel of judges, came from small and large communities with their expertise-and efforts-covering a wide range --from healthcare to education, the arts, volunteerism, and more. Here are their stories:
Ann Edenfield Sweet has dedicated her life to helping families with incarcerated loved ones.
She founded the group Wings for LIFE to provide educational programs that help break the cycle of incarceration.
She has also found ways to deliver her services even when jails and prisons were not permitting outside visitors or programs.
