(WKRG) — Every day on WKRG News 5 at 5 we will be honoring a Hometown Hero. These are all kinds of people working on the front lines from hospitals to your grocery store. Send us a picture, name, and the reason why they should be our Hometown Hero of the day. Send it to firstname.lastname@example.org and watch to see if we honor your Hometown Hero. And check back here often as we add to our gallery of heroes.
Today, we are honoring Alma Bryant High School teacher David Dai. Dai helped his students finish the school year strong online! He’s a math teacher and is one of 16 finalists for Alabama’s Teacher of the Year! He’s a Bayou la Batre native, has sponsored the school’s scholars bowl and Hi-Q academic teams, and helped launch a program to increase ACT scores.
