Ann Sirmons loves her niece Kimberly Schopp, and she ought to. Kimberly started out as Ann's "mini-me." And as Kimberly has become a grown woman, her Aunt Ann is amazed at how fine a woman that Kimberly has become.

And because of that admiration, Ann sent us a letter nominating Kimberly for Kiss Country's Caught in the Act Award, and with just one look, it's easy to see why Kimberly is this week's recipient of this auspicious award.

When I was 13 years old, I became an aunt. I wasn't thrilled at first. But then I realized I had my very own 'baby alive'. She and I 'grew up' together. She became my little mini me. I instilled in her all that was instilled in me. 35 years later, she is not only my niece but one of my best friend.

She is the most selfless, kindhearted, and compassionate young ladies you will ever meet. She has helped feed the homeless, search for missing children, gather toys for tots, collect coats and clothes for children, set out sand bags in floods, and even babysat a single father's children once for free so he could go to work to take care of his babies. She has 3 children of her own and is teaching them to have the same compassion for our community as I did her.

And for all that she does, I nominate her for the Caught In The Act award!


Kimberly Schopp, thank you for being one of the biggest reasons why this is the greatest place in America to live!

And because you've been "Caught in the Act" the gang at Silver Star Steak Smokehouse have a $100 Gift Certificate for you and the family to come have dinner on them!

Take a listen to the phone call we made to Kimberly to let her know that she was this week's Caught In The Act Award recipient.
