2015 People to Watch in the Capital Region

Every year, 225 takes a look at the people in Baton Rouge who are taking risks, trying something new and expanding their reach to make a lasting impact on the local community—and beyond. From athletics and education to reality TV and the arts, they are changing our city’s cultural landscape. Some of them do it all behind the scenes, and some of them have made the news through their work, but they all should be on your radar.

They are our 2015 People to Watch—and we can’t wait to see what they do this year. Click the images below to read their stories.

Profiles by David Jacobs, Benjamin Leger, Matthew Sigur and Kaci Yoder.
