ELKO — Riverton and The Star Hotel are presenting the Riverton Home Town Hero Award every week for the basketball season. During halftime they recognize someone in the community for going above and beyond what is asked of them, presenting a $100 check to the organization of the recipient’s choice, and a $100 gift card to The Star Hotel.
Saturday’s recipient was Matt McCarty. Matt has been married to Lora for over 13 years; they have three children Dustin, Mikayla and Karson. Matt works at Townplace Suites by Marriott in Elko. Matt volunteers for many local community organizations, a few examples are the Institutional Advisory Council at GBC, Elko Convention and Visitors Authority, and the Boy Scouts of America. Whenever a volunteer is needed Matt is always ready to get involved and help out. He donates a lot of his time to both the Elko and Spring Creek communities. Matt has chosen for Riverton to donate $100 to the Boy Scouts of America.
