KNUJ’s Hometown Hero for the Month of June is Casey Eckstein of New Ulm. Casey had just graduated from veterinary school, and after hearing about the devastating tornadoes that swept through Oklahoma recently she loaded up a trailer with donated medical supplies and drove straight through to help the victims and their pets. She has since been busy treating wounded animals and reuniting pets and their owners who had become separated, amongst many other activities. The Hometown Hero recognition is sponsored by KNUJ AM and FM and select Thrivent Financial For Lutherans agents. You can nominate YOUR Hometown Hero by logging on to KNUJ-dot-Net, or by stopping by the KNUJ and SAM 107-3 studios in New Ulm and Sleepy Eye.
