In celebration of Independence Day, the CreditYOUnion Facebook page sponsored an essay contest. The entrants were asked which four modern-day people they would choose to put on one of America’s most beloved national treasures, Mount Rushmore.
Thanks to all who submitted essays, and we congratulate Susan Loudermilk, who won the $150 grand prize for the following entry:
Some of the most influential people in America right now are the people you cannot see on TV all the time – the everyday heroes of America. I’m talking about our firefighters, our policeman, our paramedics, doctors and nurses. And then there are those who don’t risk their lives, but give it their 100% everyday, shaping the minds of our youth. Those are the kind of people whose faces should be up there – our everyday American heroes, who are making our world a better place to live!
