Long-Lewis Local Hero of September

Long Lewis Foundation gave its Local Hero of the Month for September award to Hatwatha McGhee, center, on Tuesday. With her are Christopher Ouellette, Dealer/general manager, left, and Mayor-elect James Perkins, right.

Long-Lewis Automotive awarded the September Local Hero of the Month to Hatwatha McGhee of Selma. 

She was nominated and voted on by the community on social media for Outstanding Community Service. The award is for $500.

Long-Lewis said there were many great comments and nominees of residents who go above and beyond to serve the Selma and Dallas County community. The September nominations were close, only separated by two nominations and likes that put Hatwatha McGhee as the winner with 165 nominations and likes over LeMarkus Snow with 163 nominations and likes. 

Long-Lewis Automotive Group (Selma) holds the process on their Facebook page, @longlewisselma.
