Modern-Day Heroes: People Who Are Making a Difference

Throughout 2021, CHASEO would like to identify and recognize modern-day heroes—members who have made and make a difference in their communities. We want to recognize these outstanding individuals and to tell their story as an inspiration to others.

A modern-day hero is someone who acts for others before themselves by nature. They do not require fancy costumes or cars but simply a need to help.

Essential Questions to ask yourself when you nominate an individual as a hero:

  • What does it mean to make a difference in your community?
  • What are some characteristics of people who have made or are making a difference in their communities?
  • Enduring Understandings
    “People can make a difference by helping others and solving problems.”
    “Everyone can be a hero by standing up for what he or she believes.”
  • The goal is to encourage activism and awareness and enable members to think about what they, as individuals, can do to make a difference in their community.
  • Take a moment to nominate a member for demonstrating one of the co-op principles: cooperation, collaboratives, concern for the community, and caring for others.
  • Once a month, we will review and select a story to share in the monthly newsletters. Those selected – the person nominates, and the Member Hero will win a $50 Gift Cards.

Nominate! Engage! Recognize! Celebrate!
