The Journal Times has released their "Best of Racine County 2015."
The winner with the "biggest heart" is Beth David:
"'It was always a life lesson,' David said.
"As David deals with what she said is a worsening case of multiple sclerosis approaching her 46th birthday Oct. 17, David continues to devote her life to making a difference in Racine, where she moved from her native West Allis in 1979. From finding living quarters for a homeless man and his dog in the dead of winter to initiating summer lunch programs for needy children to heightening community understanding with 'Peacefest,' which held its fourth annual event Aug. 23 at Quarry Lake Park, David lives for the betterment of others.
"Her award comes occasionally, such as when she recently greeted a boy she calls 'M' at her lunch program.
"'He was bouncing off the walls,' David said, 'and I looked at him and said, "Hey, 'M,' do you need to hug it out?" He looked at me and he came over and gave me the biggest hug ever. Everybody was dumbfounded. And then he came back two more times to get a hug."
