KNUJ Hometown Hero For August 14 Aug 13

KNUJ’s Hometown Hero for the month of August is Cleo Erickson of St. James. The St. James native has been involved with the Watonwan County Relay For Life since it began 16 years ago. She has also been active in the community’s Railroad Days festivities, helps with daycare for the children of neighbors and family, puts on a large Halloween display for the kids every year, and volunteers her time in many other ways. Erickson also worked as the secretary for St. James Schools for nearly 4 decades, and was recognized as a Watonwan County Senior Volunteer of the Year this year. The Hometown Hero recognition is sponsored by KNUJ AM & FM and select Thrivent Financial For Lutherans agents.
