Richardson Real Heroes wants to honor volunteers doing great work in Richardson, or on behalf of Richardson residents. Nominations for the 2015 Real Heroes awards are open and can be submitted online through the group’s website.

Real Heroes will honor three to five volunteers at an evening event in April 2015. The basic criteria:

  • The service must be in Richardson or benefit Richardson residents
  • The individual receives no monetary compensation for the service
  • The individual does not routinely receive public recognition for the service
  • Elected officials are not eligible.

More detailed criteria and the entry form are on the Richardson Real Heroes website at

“These people are heroes before they walk in the door,” said Bill Zeigler, Real Heroes chairman. “We just want to recognize and honor them, their efforts and their organization in a public way. This is your chance to get public recognition for someone whose dedication might otherwise go unnoticed.”

Nominations will close at midnight Jan. 5, 2015. Those chosen as 2015 Richardson Real Heroes will be honored at an awards presentation on April 2015.

Richardson Real Heroes is in its sixth year of operation and was founded and funded by The Richardson Coalition, a political action committee.
