KOB 4 is proud to be working with New Mexico Magazine on the True Heroes project which recognizes ten outstanding New Mexicans for their exceptional work to help others and their communities.

Nominations from all over the state were reviewed by a panel of judges who then chose this year’s True Heroes.

Their efforts to help others cover a wide range and they live in small and large communities but they all share a commitment to improving life for others.

 The Pueblo of Acoma is where teacher Bonnie Leno keeps the heritage language of Keres alive. And during the pandemic, even when she and her family were suffering with COVID, she focused on getting back to her work and her students — and on finding new ways to make sure ancient traditions survived.
