KNUJ’s Hometown Hero for the Month of January is Betty Rausch of New Ulm. The 83-year-old shares her time and talent on a daily basis. She volunteers many hours at MRCI Bargains, helps out with various activities at the New Ulm Senior Center, is an active member of her church, is a charter member of the Christian Mothers, and much more. 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.
