Longtime Western Heights resident Krishna McCain takes pride in the community he was raised in.


Often seen with a broom in hand he takes it upon himself to clean up forgotten pockets of his community. A neighborhood walkway, ignored by local residents after it had been gated, became overrun with debris and overgrowth, creating an eyesore and hazard.  With support from local artists, LAFD Station 26 and some hired assistants, Krishna got it done.  An ex-gang member, Krishna turned his life around and is now a member of the L.A.F.D. Emergency Response Team and an engaged community activist.  TNN Salutes You!
