A group of New Mexicans were honored as real-life heroes. 

Gov. Susana Martinez announced the 2018 New Mexico True Award winners Tuesday.

They include Kym Sanchez, who’s coordinated 187 military funerals; Yolanda Diaze, who founded a cancer program to help patients and families; Gene Pino, a former teacher and advocate of ALS programs; and Robin Brule, who served throughout the community for years. 

The four were nominated by their peers. They will also be honored during the New Mexico Bowl on Dec. 15.
