Action Ministries recently conducted a formal investiture ceremony making Tray Hughes Ross, a Hall County Fire Services employee and recipient of the prestigious Carnegie Medal of Honor, an honorary Action Hero in recognition of his commitment to the people of Gainesville.

At the event, Action Ministries Gainesville Program Director Terri Armour, who bestowed the honor on the local man, spoke about Ross’ heroic act of rescuing a blind man from a burning building.

“An Action Hero is an ordinary person who goes out of their way to help someone in need or is someone in need who works through adversity toward self-sufficiency,” Armour said. “We are proud to have a real-life example of someone who went out of their way to help someone in need as our grand marshal for Action Dash.”

The Action Dash Gainesville was on Labor Day at the University of North Georgia, Gainesville campus at 3820 Mundy Mill Road in Oakwood.
