When we announced a few months ago that we were launching our annual Heroes of Marin issue, and put a call out for nominations for those in the community who you, our readers, view as heroes, the heartfelt essays about truly admirable people came rolling in. A nomination committee, comprised of people in our community, then chose the winners in seven different categories. The result? An eclectic portrait of Marin’s movers and shakers in fields ranging from the arts, to public health to the environment. Beginning on page 6 of this week’s issue, you can read all about the 2016 Heroes of Marin in the following categories: Arts & Culture, Community Spirit, Courage, Environmental Stewardship, Innovation, Role Model and Lifetime Achievement.
We’re inspired by their stories and their work, and we hope that you will be, too.
