Randy Moffett selected as August 2023 Hub City Hero
2023 WestStar Graduate Randy Moffett has been selected as August 2023 Hub City Hero.
Moffett’s nominator, his daughter, said that she, “get to see firsthand his passion and willingness to serve our local community. He serves on a multitude of boards like Leadership Jackson, the Dream Center board, and Relay for Life. He has also completed Leadership Jackson and just graduated from West Start. He has always encouraged me to support local businesses and be a good neighbor to those around me. He is a living example of what it means to be a good neighbor and to love the Jackson community not just financially, but personally.”
“Being a parent, you always want to raise your kids right and you want to show them the correct way to do life and so it means a lot for me that she would see that,” Moffett said. “And she has seen the impact times as well but that’s a big home run for me.”
Moffett says that he is fortunate to be engaged and involved with the Jackson Community and suggests that everyone find something they are passionate about.
Moffett has personal connections to some of the organizations that he is a part of including Relay for Life, which he is a part of after losing his uncle to cancer.
“Find a cause that hits home and reach out to them,” Moffett said. “Say to them, ‘how can I donate a couple of hours of my time a month or a financial donation?’ Find something that hits home.”
Moffett says that doing nothing is “not the way” he thinks we need to live. He says that “everybody has something to give” and whatever their talent, their time or their treasure is, “should be donated to the community.”
“The giving of one’s time is probably the most unselfish act a person can do because we cannot get time back. Heroes give of their time,” said Mayor Scott Conger. “Randy is a hero for that reason. He proves it daily through his involvement with multiple boards and nonprofits.”
“Hub City Heroes” selflessly and steadily give of their time and talent to improve the lives of others in the community. Recognition as a hero is one small way to thank these public servants for their efforts and it gives honorees the opportunity to raise awareness for causes that are important to them.
