Everyday hero: Wilfred Korth

Everyday hero: Wilfred Korth

Occupation: Coleto Creek Reservoir Park Chief Ranger, recently retiring after 38 years with GBRA

Hometown: Goliad

Why honored: I’d like to nominate Wilfred Korth as an Everyday Hero. He has given so much to Goliad. He ran the Coleto Creek Park until his recent retirement. He has re-energized Canoe Trail Goliad (CTG), which encourages the use of the Goliad Paddling Trail on the San Antonio River. Canoe Trail Goliad also, in conjunction with TxDOT, cleans two miles of US 183 four times a year to help keep Goliad beautiful. Wilfred volunteers to teach children of various organizations, such as 4-H, how to canoe and kayak. I could go on forever with reasons why Wilfred Korth is an Everyday Hero. Next time you see him, let him know how much he’s appreciated.
