Linda Gail Long of Hodgenville was named LaRue County’s Mother of the Year Monday at the LaRue County Fair.
Long was referred to as an “every day hero” by Renee Skaggs, who nominated her for the award.
Skaggs said Long “has become a champion for awareness of childhood cancer. She has been involved with a national foundation by distributing information about bone marrow donor drives and helping with fundraisers.”
Long and her husband Todd have two children, Austin and Ashley.
