KNUJ’s Hometown Hero for the month of July is Allyson Blickem of New Ulm. Allyson was on a weekend campout at Lake Hanska County Park when she saved a man’s life by giving him the Heimlich Maneuver. She is also a member of the Emergency Response Team and Diversity Team at Kraft in New Ulm, and volunteers for the United Way Day of Caring every year. The Hometown Hero recognition is sponsored by KNUJ AM and FM and select Thrivent Financial For Lutherans agents. You can nominate YOUR Hometown Hero at www.knuj.net or by stopping by the KNUJ and SAM 107.3 studios in New Ulm and Sleepy Eye.
