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,” Bryce Nix of the U.S. Army.

Mr. Nix, of Mixon, was nominated by Caitlyn Nix. Caitlyn said Bryce was raised in the military world and eventually decided to join the Army. He is currently stationed in Seoul, South Korea.

To show our appreciation for Bryce's dedication and service to his country and community, he will receive a plaque courtesy of Congratulations Awards in Jacksonvillle, They specialize in awards, engraving, trophies, plaques, gifts and more. He also will also receive a gift pack from Edible Arrangements.
