860 AM KNUJ/SAM 107.3 and your New Ulm Hy Vee announce this month’s Hometown Heroes: Sleepy Eye Aquatic Center Lifeguard Jaclyn Nessett and Springfield teenager Jon Baures. On July 10th Jon was playing basketball in the pool when he saw a young boy go under, slip and inhale water. Jon brought the boy to the surface where 16-year-old lifeguard Jaclyn Nessett performed CPR on the boy. Once Sleepy Eye Ambulance arrived they gave him oxygen and he began breathing and talking. Our latest Hometown Heroes: Jaclyn Nessett and Jon Baures. They’ll receive a Mall of America package and be recognized at a luncheon this fall.
860 AM KNUJ/SAM 107.3 and HyVee would like to acknowledge those in your community, neighborhood or organization that give the most precious gift – time to worthwhile causes, helping those less fortunate or rescue efforts in an emergency situation. We welcome nominations from a 10-county area. Get information at the service counter of your New Ulm HyVee, knuj.net or at the KNUJ/SAM 107.3 studios in New Ulm and Sleepy Eye. Help us share the stories of Hometown Heroes throughout the KNUJ/SAM 107.3 listening area.
