Publisher Notes: June/July 2021

Astronaut Jim Lovell said “there are people who make things happen, there are people who watch things happen, and there are people who wonder what happened. To be successful, you need to be a person who makes things happen.”

Every year we feature 10 young professionals who are making a name for themselves in their respective businesses. This year is no exception. The talent pool of our workforce is becoming increasingly stronger every year. The industry represented with year’s class includes hospitality, banking, law, visual arts and landscape maintenance just to name a few. I hope you take some time to read about these extraordinary young people who are making a difference in our community.

Also in this issue, Don Rhodes and Lamar Garrard detail Augusta’s rich history of America’s favorite pasttime, baseball. Who knew Augusta played such a role for so many in the sport.

The best part of this job, by far, is meeting new people and discovering new things about the place we call home. I hope you learn something along the way as well!
