September 2021 Long-Lewis Hero of the Month

Robbie Fancher was named Long-Lewis Automotive Group's September Local Hero of the Month. 

Long-Lewis Automotive Group has announced Robbie Fancher as the September Local Hero of the Month. 

Fancher is the head coach of a 10 and under girls softball team. 

"He doesn't get paid, nor does he get the recognition he deserves," said a post on Long-Lewis' Facebook page. "He spends countless hours after work practicing with these girls, and usually every other Saturday leading them to tournament play to represent Selma in cities in Alabama."

Nominees for Local Hero of the Month are chosen based on contributions made to the community. The chosen nominee will be given $500 for "Outstanding Community Service" and a Certificate of Appreciation.

To nominate someone, comment on their Facebook post and the one with the most likes will be chosen. The winner will be announced on the first day of the following month.

A winner can only be nominated every six months in order to encourage more people to take part in the effort.
