2020 Everyday heroes
Meet the 2020 class of Everyday Heroes, who quietly work to heal, unite and improve our communities. Their generosity and kindness are even more inspiring–and sorely needed–during this time of a global pandemic, economic turmoil and social unrest.
In the spring, we asked for nominations to recognize members of the Columbus area whose extraordinary selfless acts set them apart in these divisive times.
After reviewing the nominations, our panel of judges selected these five finalists and 20 semifinalists.
The Dispatch Media Group has partnered with NBC4 WCMH-TV to produce a television program to highlight the Everyday Heroes; it will air Oct. 13 from 12:30 to 1 pm.
During that show, an overall Everyday Hero will be announced.
