This week’s Everyday Hero is Deven Rea! Deven is a sophomore at Wheaton North High School and is an amazing trumpet player and volunteers his time to play Taps at military funerals. He started doing this back in middle school and normally people his age are not chosen for something that prestigious, but he auditioned and was chosen. Deven was nominated by a friend of his mother’s – Ann Wakeman. She told us he is talented, mature and an all-around great kid. But then we also heard from Deven’s mom and she wrote “Deven is extremely honored, but he also asked me to explain that he is not a hero. He just sees himself as a trumpet player using his skill to help honor the real heroes who have served.” Well Deven, we agree that those who have served are heroes – but those who honor the dignity of our service members are heroic as well and that is why you are this week’s Everyday Hero!
