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:
Small business owner and RV dealer Erin Chisolm looked around her community this year and saw her neighbors in need of basic supplies, including toilet paper and food.
She soon realized she could help at a much larger scale.
Chisolm got to work-- organizing, buying, and delivering care packages to people in need. With the help of State Auditor Brian colon, they have delivered more than 200,000 meals to 11,000 families across the state.
