Shaping STL
Meet some of the creative and passionate forces behind movement in St. Louis.

Great men and women, like great cities, are not born. On the contrary, they are forged in the flames of trial and error. Built upon a strong foundation of purpose and grit, they dare to raise themselves to great heights, to stand triumphant over adversity and critics alike. Great men and women, like great cities, begin with dreams and end up inspiring them.
And like great cities, they all have a story to tell.
