Helping others help themselves; the story of how George Nieters has changed lives

Posted on Wednesday, November 28, 2012 at 3:51 pm

George Nieters has been called an extremely family focused man. According to those closest to him he is not just part of their family but of the community and life would just not be the same without him.

Compassionate, humble, dedicated and strong headed are just a few of the words used to describe George Nieters, a man who has seemingly dedicated his life to helping others.

When Nieters moved to Elsberry approximately 40-years ago, he said he was told he would never be accepted.

“I was an outsider in their eyes,” said Nieters. “I was told I would not fit, that I would forever and always be looked at as an outsider. So I dedicated myself to proving them wrong.”
