Do You Know A Southern Hero?


You don't have to be a Southerner to know a Southern hero. What's more, you may know one without realizing it. Southern heroes take many forms, but - above all-they're anyone who makes the South's communities stronger, safer and more united. That could mean a devoted teacher, heroic firefighter, tireless volunteer or selfless mother. If you know one, a leading wireless company would like to hear his or her story. For the past two years, SouthernLINC Wireless has recognized a total of 10 outstanding public servants in the South through its Southern Heroes program. As part of that program, the company will make a donation to each recipient's charity of choice. After last year's hurricane season, the importance of honoring the South's unsung heroes is more important than ever. After all, many individuals in those communities emerged as heroes. Whether these folks helped give shelter to those who lost their homes to Hurricane Katrina, aided in the rebuilding efforts of communities along the Gulf Coast or organized a communitywide fund-raiser for the victims, SouthernLINC Wireless would like to recognize their heroic efforts. "In the wake of the devastating 2005 hurricane season, we are more dedicated than ever to paying tribute to those who truly exemplify the characteristics of a Southern hero," said Bob Dawson, president and CEO of SouthernLINC Wireless. If you know a Southern hero, please share his or her story by taking a moment to visit and submitting the short online entry form between August 1 and August 31, 2006. Entry forms can also be found at any SouthernLINC Wireless retail location. Log on to to find the store nearest you. The five Southern Heroes who will be spotlighted and rewarded will be announced in September 2006. Additionally, SouthernLINC Wireless will further the heroes' efforts by contributing $2,000 to the non-profit organization or charity of each winner's choice for a total of $10,000 in celebration of the company's 10-year anniversary.
