Ten Who Made a Difference

Every year the Gillette News Record profiles 10 people who have made a difference in the community that year. We publish a special section in the last issue of the year, complete with a short profile and a portrait of each award recipient. This year we added a video component and produced short videos for each person as well. See the entire piece on our website.
