Photo Gallery | 10 inspirational people in Your Neighborhood
As we all know, it doesn't take an elaborate award or event to possess inspirational qualities.
Take a look at your neighbor. Perhaps it's your English teacher, the lady pulling a pile of employment applications down the courthouse halls, or a local college quarterback singing Jessie J with an 11-year-old battling leukemia.
Action News 5's reporters and producers interview dozens of exhilarating Memphians every month, so why wait until December to make an end-of-the-year list to share some our most inspirational stories.
For this week's #MemphisTriviaTuesday, we share with you ten stories about Memphis people, including children, who put smiles on our faces. Do you know someone who deserves to be on this list? Then email firstname.lastname@example.org.
