KNUJ’s Hometown Hero for the Month of March is Betty Maidl of Lafayette. Along with being very active with her church, Betty volunteers her time with local blood drives and flu shot clinics, helps out at assisted living centers, has served at local election centers for many years, helps seniors find rides to important appointments, and much more. Betty Maidl was also named the Nicollet County Outstanding Senior Citizen in 2003. The Hometown Hero recognition is sponsored by KNUJ AM and FM and select Thrivent Financial For Lutherans agents.
