In each community, there are those who selflessly serve. Those who create programs to help people heal and workplaces for people to belong. Those who drive economic and infrastructural growth. Those who donate from their resources of time and treasure. Those who tell stories to preserve the past and guide young people for the future.
Every year, we ask you to tell us who these people are in your communities and circles of influence. You send us your nominations of the difference makers you know, and then we at B Magazine form a committee who votes on the nominees based on the scope and magnitude of their impact.
This year, from more than 40 nominees, we honor with the title of “Newsmaker” 18 people with 15 different causes who are making a difference throughout the Southeast Missouri region. Thank you, Newsmakers, for all you’ve done and for all the countless hours you continue to pour into pushing our communities forward, making sure no one is left behind. Here’s to you.
