I covered local news for The Saratogian from Dec. 2016 through Oct. 2018. During that time I wrote some stories about impressive people. Here are four of them:

FIVE YEAR OLD MAKES A DIFFERENCE

Porter turned five in the summer of 2017. Inspired by a former Noble Peace Prize Winner, Porter created Whole House. Months later she started collecting money to buy winter clothes for a homeless shelter.


Miguel Hoyos left Columbia for the United States decades ago. Soccer being his passion, he decided to coach. He ended up changing hundreds of lives, and not necessarily because of soccer. But because of how he carried himself on and off the field.


A brave eight-year-old girl’s life changed one October day. Her family, faced with a brand new problem, embrace their new life.


Pastors Drew and Heather created a program to help alcoholics find a relationship with a higher power.
