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:
Matt Probst is the medical director of El Centro Family Services in Las Vegas.
The center serves some of the most vulnerable residents in seven counties.
In addition to his community work, Probst stepped up during the COVID-19 pandemic to help set up care in under-resourced rural New Mexico with the governor’s office, the Department of Health, and local health agencies.
