Each year, News 3 and our community partners at Southern Bank honor 12 of our People Taking Action award winners from the past year who had the most-clicked stories on WTKR.com.

Highfield was awarded a $2,500 gift certificate to CI Travel to book a vacation, plus a $1,000 donation from Southern Bank to the charity of her choice.
