Our QDR Hometown Hero of this week is Stephen Edmondson. Stephen is an EMT for Wilson, Police Officer for Nashville, and a volunteer firefighter for Sharpsburg.
Stephen was nominated by his aunt Ernestine Edmondson who says, “Stephen is one of the most hard-working young men in my life. By the age of 21, he has accomplished so many things in life to help others because of the love he has for people. At 16 years old, he became a volunteer firefighter and then became an EMT after finishing high school. By the time he turned 20, he had followed his dreams of becoming a police officer. When he’s not working as a police officer in Nashville, he’s working as an EMT in Wilson on his days off. Between those times, he volunteers as a firefighter for Sharpsburg and still makes time for his family and friends. This young man has inspired us so much that we know his grandma in Heaven is so proud of him and she’s smiling down on him because she’s the reason he has never given up after all the long, hard, and stressful work he had to put in to accomplish everything he has in the last 2 years. This is a young man that would take the shirt off his back to help anyone that is in need. So yes, we’re nominating my amazing nephew because he is a superhero in our eyes. We wanted him to know how proud of him that we are of him and that we all love him so much. God sure has blessed us with one amazing young man in our lives.”
Thank you, Stephen, for your service! As a token of our appreciation, we’re sending you a gift card to Smithfield’s Chicken ‘N Bar-B-Q to thank you for all you do!
