Yakima Valley's Hometown Heroes gives us a chance to shine and spotlight and give some recognition to someone who deserves it. Meet Tiffany Nygard. She's a local teacher and is, truly, one of Yakima Valley's Hometown Heroes.

Here's what her sister, Melissa, says.

My sister has truly been given the gift to teach. She has changed the lives of so many youngsters. She puts their needs before her own, and works long and hard to make sure each one of her students get the best education possible. We need more teachers like her in our valley.

If you have someone you want to have in Yakima Valley's hometown Heroes, make sure you send us their info so we can feature them on the air and on our website.
