6th Annual Boomers and Shakers Awards

By Cheryl Miller | December 2nd, 2016

6 Inspirational Richmond Boomers

For the sixth year, BOOMER received reader nominations of local baby boomers who have bettered the community in inspiring and significant ways. After a challenging decision-making process, the Boomers & Shakers panel narrowed the field to six.

You’ll meet these inspirational Richmonders in profiles on the following pages and on-air interviews by Cheryl Miller on WTVR-CBS 6’s Virginia This Morning. The interviews will begin on Friday, Dec. 2, with BOOMER editor Annie Tobey and continue the following week, Dec. 5-9.

Finally, the honorees and guests will be feted at an awards event in January.
