The KNUJ Hometown Hero for the month of July is Richard Hellendrung of rural Fairfax. Richard is being honored for his 50 years and more than one million miles of violation-free school bus driving. Hellendrung retired this past winter from his GFW bus route.
The Hometown Hero recognition is sponsored by KNUJ AM and FM and your New Ulm Hy-Vee. To nominate a Hometown Hero, stop by the HyVee customer service desk or our studios in New Ulm or Sleepy Eye or go online to knuj.net.
