I've always believed that the true measure of a person could be found in their heart and their actions.

If their heart is in the right place, their actions will reflect that.

Case and point is in Amanda Pittmon. With a heart of gold, she never hits the pause button with her actions for others.

Thank you to her Mom, Renee Starret, for managing to put Amanda's greatness into beautiful words like she did with her nomination letter, which easily made Amanda a shoe-in as this week's recipient of the Kiss Country Caught in the Act Award.

Amanda is a young lady with different abilities than most of us. Although she has dealt with health issues all of her life including seizures and numerous surgeries, she focuses on what she can do for others. She loves to create: necklaces, bracelets, keychains, paintings, blankets, suncatchers, etc... She is happiest when she is sharing with others. For several years, she has been painting "cross" suncatchers for law enforcement, first responders and military members with a note thanking them for their service. When she sees one of the above in uniform out and about, she is quick to share a cross and a hug. Since the pandemic, we have added healthcare workers as well. Amanda is our special blessing sharing her love with the community!

Amanda Pittmon, thank you for being so amazing! You are a big reason why this is the greatest place in America to live! And because you've been 'Caught in the Act' the gang at Silver Star Smokehouse have a $100 Gift Certificate for you and the family to come have dinner!

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