ABC27 News Hometown Hero has been making a difference for young people in the midstate for decades.
A retired teacher from Nye Elementary, Paula VonStein, nominated Donald Beam to be a hero for his many years giving back to the Lower Dauphin School District.
Donald is currently battling cancer. The 92-year old and his wife sue are lovingly known as Mr. and Mrs. Hummelstown.
When Donald retired more than 25-years ago, he volunteered at Nye Elementary along with Sue.
The couple also mowed the lawn at Hummelstown cemetery, supported town and school fundraisers and were unofficial cheerleaders for the Lower Dauphin girls’ field hockey team.
