As a tribute to heroes this upcoming Memorial Day, Telmate Manager and Boise, Idaho native Tim Haus gave The Boys & Girls Club of Western Treasure Valley a glimpse of what true heroes are with his Hero Awareness class on May 20, 2015.
“Working for an industry that serves law enforcement, Telmate is no stranger to everyday heroes who put their lives on the line for the sake of public service,” said Haus. “My goal was to show these kids the true meaning of service and sacrifice and hopefully inspire them to choose a righteous path for themselves when they grow up.”
During his one-hour presentation, Haus got the kids to think about who their heroes are and why those individuals represent heroes to them. By showing the kids images of both male and female superheroes, and having them share various interpretations of hero (or heroine) qualities, Haus was able to get the kids to examine their own hero definitions, state who their heroes are, and why.
