Glory Foods Announces ‘Honor Your Hero’ Photo Contest Winners

March 18, 2013

Contestants submitted pictures via Glory Foods’ Facebook page of people they deemed heroes and shared why their nominees were remarkable during the competition held in February to commemorate Black History Month.

May won with her stirring tribute to her mother, who lost a battle with cancer in 2003.

“She endured the loss of a child, multiple major surgeries, the loss of a spouse and many other tragedies, but never lost her zest for living and sense of humor,” said May, whose entry received more than 1,300 votes. “She was a fantastic mother and grandmother and was my hero and best friend. I hope to someday be half the woman she was.”

Glory Foods’ Facebook fans chose the winners. There were more than 5,200 votes cast for almost 30 entries.

“There were numerous entries from our consumers that recognized family members, friends or individuals they acknowledged from afar,” said Dan Charna, vice president of operations for Glory Foods. “Entries were thoughtful, touching and provided brief biographies recognizing heroes across the nation.”
