10 For The Next 10

Watch out for these 10 change-makers who are carving out a new identity for 417-land.

The quickest way to understand the impact the 10 for the Next 10 have had on 417-land is to imagine what it would look like without them. Imagine Springfield without The Mystery Hour, which has been entertaining locals for more than 11 years and delighted millions with its Instagram Husband video. Or without Rosie, which is leading the charge in equal pay with its Rosie Makes Cents campaign. We’d be missing a County Commissioner and the chair of The Network, the Springfield Area Chamber of Commerce’s young professional networking group. Think about the fact that you might not be able to catch an Uber downtown to grab a cocktail at Scotch & Soda. It’s not a fun exercise.

This is by no means an exhaustive list of the contributions these 10 individuals have made, but it’s easy to see that we’d be missing a lot without them. Besides being driven, creative and hardworking, one trait that ties this diverse group of people together is their passion for our community—passion that translates to an enormous amount of time spent thinking about and putting into action ways to make 417-land better. These are people we want on Springfield’s team, and we can’t wait to see what they’ll do next. Click on each photo to read more.
