Hi Everyone,

Since my return to the RGV earlier this year, I have been fascinated by the progress over the last eight years. While I periodically visited the Valley during the last eight years, living again in the Valley is giving me a first hand experience in experiencing the progress. I pondered as to what is contributing to it and more importantly, who is making it possible? 

So, today, I am embarking on a quest of identifying the 25 women and 25 men of the RGV that have influenced it in all walks of life - from the arts to education to construction to international trade to.... 50 folks is a small number and therein lies the challenge - identifying the real movers and shakers, the action oriented folks. 

I am reaching out to you to learn about who you think should be on the list. Next, I will reach out to those folks that are consistently identified by the diverse audience across the Valley to invite them to meet with me and share their accomplishments and vision for the future of the Valley. Additionally, I will do environmental portraits of them (at no cost to them in exchange for their permission allowing me to use their images). The pictures I take will complete the story they want to share.

The end result will be a photo album format publication and of course, an eBook on the 50 folks.

I need your help - please spread the word about this project and of course, send me your thoughts on who should make it to the list at pino@ArtByPino.com.

Thank you.
