In many ways, Wisconsin resembles its neighboring Midwestern states. Economically, we all rely on both agriculture and the production of goods to form the base of our economy. We all have similar high school graduation rates, median incomes and strong public universities. We even share our “Midwestern values.”
What sets Wisconsin apart, besides the Green Bay Packers (yes, that’s a humorous aside), is its people. In the pages that follow, you’ll meet 15 of Wisconsin’s most innovative, hard-working and ground-breaking individuals. Whether disrupting the status quo for health care delivery or applying unfailing energy to revitalizing their communities, those featured here have one thing in common – a love of Wisconsin and a commitment to its future.
