2022 People to Watch in the Capital Region

What will 2022 look like? The people featured in these pages have a lot to say about it.

This year’s class of People to Watch are changing the game inside our local classrooms, sports stadiums, bike lanes and art galleries.

A cryptocurrency company has already managed to donate more than $2 million-plus to charity—and it’s based right here in Baton Rouge. The founder of an education alliance is holding public schools accountable—and empowering parents and everyday citizens to do the same. One local physician’s work on COVID-19 preventatives could save lives. And a young social media guru’s posts reach as many followers as the entire population of the state of Louisiana.

If the past year taught us anything, it’s that we can’t predict the future. But we can at least look toward those who are shaping it and know they all have the same goal in mind: making this city a better place to live in—and be proud of.
