Question: Who is your hero?

Kyle Leske My grandfather because he served in the military and I always looked up to him.

Nicole Lezer My 15-year-old cousin, MaKenzie. She was born with a hole in her heart and had numerous surgeries before she turned one. She’s an amzing young woman.

Amy Udermann My mother because she raised six kids and is just a kind, faith-filled, generous person.

Jim Mickelson John Wayne: he’s the best there is, the best there was, and the best there ever will be.

Gerrin Dehn, with daughter Bailey My husband because he’s hard-working, straight-forward, honest, works for what he has and he’s proud of it.
