ENFIELD, CT — When times are tough, heroes emerge. We all know someone who’s making a difference right now as we live through unprecedented times. Here at Patch, we’ve launched an initiative to help recognize these everyday heroes.
This submission comes from Michelle Tronsky, who nominated her daughter, Cathryne Tronsky of Enfield.
Is the nominee considered an “essential worker”?
What does the nominee do for work?
Works for a veterinarian
Why do you believe the nominee should be recognized or honored?
All of our children are amazing, but I have to say Cathryne goes above and beyond most people that I know. Not only is she in her first year of an animal science degree, she is working full time at a veterinary practice helping take care of the animals. It’s not only a tough job that she excels in, but she cares for the animals and their owners. At this time they are not allowed in the exam rooms, so Cathryne cares for these pets like they are her own. She amazes me every day with her kindness. She gets up every morning, does her schoolwork, then off to work. She also helps out at her father’s farm with all their farm animals, all the while maintaining top notch grades. She also helps me out financially around the house because my business is shut down due to COVID-19. I couldn’t ask for a more generous daughter; I know she will go far in life.
What’s one thing you want everyone to know about your hero?
Generosity and caring of others.
Thank you Cathryne for all that you do!
