KNUE + Patterson ‘Hometown Hero’ of the Week: PFC Shelby Francis of the U.S. Marines

Ashley Woodley

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 + Patterson UTI are proud to announce this week’s “Hometown Hero” from Diana, PFC Shelby Francis of the United States Marines.

PFC Shelby was nominated by Ashley Woodley, and here is what Ashley has to say about Shelby:

I am nominating Shelby Francis because she not only is following in her father’s footsteps, but she has overcome two set backs in her career. The first set back was in bootcamp when she hurt her ankle, and had to push back her graduation for a moth. Then when she was stationed at Fort Lenard Wood, Missouri, she broke her wrist which held her back from training for awhile. But she never gave up and kept pushing herself forward to become a Marine and protect her country.

To show our appreciation for PFC Shelby Francis dedication and service to her country, she will receive a plaque courtesy of Congratulations Awards in Jacksonvillle, They specialize in awards, engraving, trophies, plaques, gifts and more. The Hometown Hero will also receive a delicious gift pack from Edible Arrangements.
