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.

Volunteer Firefighter Vandee Silva was only 16 when she followed in her dad’s footsteps. Now, she’s keeping Thoreau area residents safe with her quick thinking and life-saving actions.

And, there’s no other word than “hero” to describe what she did when a life was threatened in a horrible accident.
