Nominate a Hero!
One South Euclid (OSE) is looking to honor a few Hometown Heroes and asking the community to nominate those who have made a difference. Anyone can nominate an individual, group, organization or business that has improved or enhanced the lives of others in South Euclid. You'll find the nomination form here and the deadline to submit is June 30 at midnight.
The chosen Hometown Heroes will be feted at OSE’s annual fundraising event on Thursday, October 20.
“There are so many local heroes in South Euclid, some of whom may work quietly behind the scenes making our community a better place to live, work and play, “says OSE Executive Director, Annette Iwamoto. “It’s why we’re asking for nominations. These heroes are indispensable influences that strengthen our community. The Hometown Hero award is our way of saying thank you for making a difference.”
Last year was the first time the annual awards were presented at the Mingle at the Mansion event. Those honored in 2021 were Richard A. Barone, Founder of the Museum of American Porcelain Art; long-time community volunteers, Joseph and Marie Frank and Keesha McMillian; and University Suburban Health Center for its support to the community over several decades.
Nominated individuals must be at least 18 year of age. Groups, organizations or business nominees must be located within the city of South Euclid, or have made a significant difference to the city. Current elected or appointed public officials or current city employees or related entities are ineligible.
A completed nomination form must be accompanied by a letter from the nominator (no more than two pages) detailing the activities and contributions of the nominee. The letter can be uploaded on the form.
