When there is a job that needs doing, a problem that needs fixing or a world that needs changing, it is often remarkable men who rise to the occasion. It was that spirit that responded to a call to arms against tyranny, settled the American West, pulled the nation out of the depths of the Great Depression, and set the pace for innovation and compassion the world over.

 

Most every generation is defined by strong, capable and just men, which inspired the creation of AY About You’s annual “Men of Distinction.” Herein, discover the remarkable individuals who have built businesses, served their fellow Arkansans unselfishly and guided their children in the finest of American ideals — justice, respect, hard work and faith.

 

As a state, Arkansans are singularly privileged to have these men in their midst, and as a society, all excel by following their strident examples. AY About You salutes their individual accomplishments and the collective ethos that define them as Men of Distinction.

 

Congratulations to all of this year’s honorees.
