Those selected are in the running for The Sun-Times Person of the Year!

Do you know an outstanding individual you feel should be recognized in the community?  Tell us about them.  The Sun-Times will be running a monthly segment titled “The Sun-Times Person of the Month”.  Each month, The Sun-Times will feature an individual as our Person of the Month, who will be chosen from submissions we receive.

For Person of the Month, we’re looking for outstanding people with amazing stories who aren’t necessarily in the spotlight.  These devoted persons are behind the scenes, giving their all for the community or overcoming tremendous life obstacles.  These are the hidden “gems” of Cleburne County. 

Our June Person of the Month was Libby Jackson of Heber Springs and the Person of the Month for July will be announced next week.  At the end of the year, we will look at the Persons of the Month and, from those nominees, name the Sun-Times Person of the Year, who will receive a plaque in recognition.

To nominate someone you feel should be recognized, send us a photo and tell us why this person is an outstanding Cleburne County resident.  All written submissions must be between 150-700 words and must be about someone else.  No self-nominations. 

To nominate your candidate for “The Sun-Times Person of the Month”, send a photo and written nomination to    If you can’t get a photo, let us know and we’ll do our best to get the photo for you.
