All-American Pest Control, based in Nashville, Tenn., has selected Susan Landfield, a local nurse, as its 2020 Hometown Hero Award recipient.
The company honored Landfield with a parade through her neighborhood and presented a certificate to her for 10 years of free pest control, which includes ant, spider, tick and termite protection, mosquito reduction and yard treatment services.
Landfield was nominated for her selflessness in the way she continually gives of her time and talents to help her neighbors — especially through COVID-19.
“Susan embodies what it means to be Hometown Hero,” said President Erin Richardson. “Serving as a nurse and being a mom to her 3-year-old son takes a lot of energy, but she has continued to find ways to go above and beyond to bring comfort and peace of mind to others — from making sure those who couldn’t shop for themselves had groceries to arranging porch deliveries of hand sanitizer. She represents so many other working moms and essential workers who are juggling a great deal yet continuing to give.”
After selecting Landfield as a finalist, the team at All-American Pest Control learned that she was recently diagnosed with Alpha-Gal Syndrome, a Lone Star tick-born food allergy to red meat, that she believes to have contracted in her own front yard, according to a news release from the company.
“This honor has been such a wonderful surprise,” Landfield said. “While I don’t think of myself as a hero, I’m grateful and hope others are inspired to show acts of kindness in their own neighborhoods.”
The is the company’s second annual Hometown Hero Award. All-American Pest Control accepted nominations for anyone residing in the following Tennessee counties: Davidson, Williamson, Maury, Dickson, Rutherford, Wilson, Montgomery and Sumner.
