Those close to me know that I love to recognize hard work. It’s helped define the American experience and is a big part of what made our nation great. I’m reminded of this each day when I see firsthand the hard work of everyone here at AY Media Group. I’m reminded each day when I see my friends and colleagues — health care workers, small business owners, white collar, blue collar and everything in between — whose hard work makes our economy go. This hard work has helped push us through a turbulent year.
Hard work is in the American DNA. Of course, hard work can be found everywhere across the globe. But despite its faults, America exudes that roll-up-your-sleeves, “get ’er done” moxie borne of a diverse and opportunistic DNA. That diversity and innate optimism, emboldened by the promise of unbound opportunity, are what make us strong.
In this month’s issue of Arkansas Money & Politics, we recognize some of the hard workers helping make Arkansas the hidden gem it is. The “Legal Elite” recognizes 100 of the top attorneys in the state, as nominated by AMP readers and staff. And our list of 100 top professionals representing multiple disciplines and industries — showcases a group whose hard work has left an impression on their fellow Arkansans.
We hope you enjoy what you find inside. A lot of hard work goes into the publications of AY Media Group, and I’m proud of the folks who make them happen.
