All of us at 101.5 KNUE are proud to be part of East Texas, and we are especially proud to live in a place where we hold our military and first responders in such high regard. KNUE is proud to announce this week’s “Hometown Hero,” Firefighter Chad Hardisty of the Westside VFD. Chad was nominated by Amanda Hardisty and here is what she had to say about Chad:

Chad is smart and committed to his department and enjoys helping everyone, whether it's fire or medical related. He is always the first in and the last out!

KNUE salutes Chad for his service and dedication to his job and his community. To show our appreciation, Chad will receive a plaque courtesy of Congratulation Awards in Jacksonville.
