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 infra structural 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 that votes on the nominees based on the scope and magnitude of their impact.
This year, we honor with the title of “Difference Maker” to 16 people who are making a difference throughout the Southeast Missouri region. Thank you, Difference Makers, 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.
