There are those who walk among us who know that taking action today ensures a better future for tomorrow. We salute 5 local heroes whose leadership, passion and tireless work is solely for the betterment of Bermuda. They share a belief that to make a meaningful contribution to this island, you have to roll up your sleeves and get things done.

Whether you agree with their mission or not, they are smart, dedicated, innovative, tenacious and, we think, the brightest lights in our community this year.
