It is our immense pleasure to present to you the 2022 class of Men on a Mission.

Last year, our team officially launched this special section, one we’d long dreamt of sharing. This year, following a warm reception to the inaugural class, we’re thrilled to bring back the list. We opened nominations to readers before vetting each entry, then reaching out with this marketing opportunity.

In the profiles below, you’ll meet 25 men who are changing the way people do business and life together in central Arkansas. They are givers, game-changers and most importantly, fueled by more than just the daily grind.

Please join us in congratulating the 2022 class.
