Before Snowmageddon 2021, Sheila Burger didn't really know Susie Young that well, but after Susie's acts of kindness during that winter freeze, she'll never forget her. And though countless truck drivers and everyday travelers stranded along I-20 might never know Susie's name, they were impacted the same.

See, during that time, Susie took it upon herself to extend a helping hand to hundreds, if not thousands, caught off guard by the wrath of Mother Nature.

And that was exactly why Sheila Burger wrote to tell us of Susie's heroics! That letter made it clear to us that Susie was the perfect choice as this week's recipient of the Kiss Country Caught in the Act Award.

Susie Young brought fire wood to my family when the power was out and we were freezing. She has been feeding the truckers stuck at pilot in Haughton and at loves in Minden. She has fed first responders, linemen, and military during this winter storm. She has put herself on the line to help those around her. If she hasn’t blessed you she has more than likely blessed someone you know.

Susie Young, thank you for being an inspiration to us all and 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 have a $100 Gift Certificate for you to come have dinner on them!

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