94.9 WDKB presented this weeks #HometownHero award to:

Malia Jones

Thanks to Gretchen from Cortland for nominating Malia. She said:

“Malia is a “doer,” a “changer,” and a “go-getter.” She has spent the past several years advocating for Uptown (aka Annie Glidden North) to connect residents with community resources and support them in self-advocacy. Malia was the brains and gusto behind many community events in Uptown this summer, including Uptown Sounds and water play events with the police department. You can often find Malia at City Hall or the Police Department to ask questions, make connections, and take action. Her most recent venture, Date with Dignity, brought much needed supplies and resources for the underserved in our community. She has a heart of gold and an unmatched energy. Malia is improving DeKalb by her courage to act.”
