It's great to live in a community where neighbors help each other; benefits are held for those in need of financial and emotional support; churches give clothing, food and assistance to those who have fallen on hard times; and teachers, bus drivers, coaches and other parents take a vested interest in each and every child.
We are a small county, but we are big in matters of the heart - and that's something to be proud of!
Do you know someone who has gone out of their way to help our community? Would you like to recognize someone in Tyler County who has impacted your life and the lives of others in a positive way?
In the coming weeks The Tyler Star News would like to shine the spotlight on our friends and neighbors to show them how much we appreciate what they do for us, and we need your help! After all, nothing is more honorable than a grateful heart.
