KSST’s ‘Nice People Awards’ is Valentine Season Favorite

The “Nice People Awards” has been a Valentine-season feature on KSST for the past few decades. It is a program which spotlights the everyday, nice things that local people do for others in their community. Held annually during the time of the Academy Awards and the Hopkins County Chamber of Commerce recognitions, this simple showcase is for the everyday nice folks we all know, and KSST listeners love to get involved.

Nominations of nice people were made by phone and by e-mail, then read on the air during the Good Morning Show. Nominations included a cheerful laundry worker who brings smiles to residents at a local assisted living facility, a lady who shares her holiday table with persons who have no family nearby, a husband who is caring for his disabled wife, a volunteer cook at Meal-a-Day, a married couple who covered the farm work for their neighbors so they could have a weekend off, and many other self-sacrificing people who live and work in the local area. Three winners were selected.

2019 Winners were; Randy and Tracy Roen, nominated by Deborah Pinson, Mrs. Hillis Bass nominated by Karon Weatherman, and Linda Bulkley, nominated by her son Bryant Bulkley. Each winner receives a Dinner for Two with dessert from Bodacious BBQ in Sulphur Springs, Texas.
