It only takes one person, one idea to make a difference. At 225, we are fortunate to start off every new year by highlighting those game-changers. This year, we’ve got 19 locals to celebrate.
Whether they are making astronomical discoveries about our universe, reinvigorating a football team, advocating for civil and social change in our city or opening trendy new food concepts, they are each making Baton Rouge a cooler, better place to live.
We couldn’t be prouder to share this city with them.
