ROCHESTER, Minn. – For its 34th year, the city took time to recognize people who are making a difference in the community with the Mayor’s Medal of Honor awards.

Many of the winners were shocked to receive the honor because they said they’re just doing what they love.

“You hear these stories of people that wouldn't tell their own story generally,” Mayor Ardell Brede said. “They just are doing it because it's the right thing to do and so we sometimes almost have to trick them to get them here and thinking that somebody else is getting the award.”

People who won an award last year were able to nominate someone for this year. Many of the recipients saw a need in the community and worked to fill it. This includes affordable housing, addiction rehab, and education.

Kathy Davis was one of 13 award recipients. She said she’s inspired by everyone’s work.

“Just hearing all of the things that people are doing, it makes me want to go out and do even more,” Davis said.
