S: Heros By: Jody Hagedorn
FC: Hero Book By:Jody Hagedorn
1: Heroes A hero to me is someone who wants to help people. They would have to be caring, respectful, responsible, and generous. Of course, it takes much more to be a hero, but to me those are the characteristics that stick out to me. To be a hero you don’t need to be able to fly, have x-ray vision, or super strength. Look at the heroes out in our world today; we have firefighters, police officers, teachers, nurses and doctors, even moms and dads can be hero.

6: Dr. Buck
7: Medicine Dr. Buck is a surgeon in Ames, Iowa. He does a lot of surgeries for the Iowa State athletes. He helped me with my shoulder. I was having shoulder pain, and I ended up tearing my labrum and my rotator cuff. Dr. Buck was able to do surgery and put two anchors in my shoulder so that I was able to play softball and basketball without pain. Now my shoulder feels better than ever.
