XENIA — A local business recognized a pair of Hometown Heroes during a special dinner June 1.
Modern Woodman, which believes in giving back to the community, honored Scott Dye and Dixie DeBorde with certificates and donations to their favorite charities.
Dye recently introduced lacrosse to area high school students and as a volunteer coach, he puts in a lot of time with tasks including scheduling and organizing. In addition to working full-time and coaching, Dye has a wife and two kids, but he continues to dedicate any extra time he has to the lacrosse team and his players.
DeBorde recently retired as cafeteria manager for Xenia Community Schools. According to a release from Modern Woodman, DeBorde worked hard to make sure all of her students were fed and often contributed money out of her own pocket to help struggling families pay for lunches. During the cold weather, she would gather resources to help any student in need with a coat, gloves or a hat. DeBorde continues to focus on children by teaching Awanas at her church.
