About the series

They share a love for Northern New Mexico, its diverse cultures and the big landscapes that surround us.

They also share a love for giving back to the community with their time, energy and expertise.

This year’s honorees for The New Mexican’s annual 10 Who Made a Difference profiles include a longtime pueblo governor who led his people to improved physical and financial health; a woman who has imbued the love of archaeology and preservation to teens; a longtime museum director who has embraced youth theater.

Since 1995, the newspaper has told stories about community volunteers, and starting this Thanksgiving we will continue that tradition — to give thanks to them and all others in Northern New Mexico who step outside themselves to help others.

Their stories will run over the next 10 days — Socorro Aragón, John Berkenfield, Kathy Olshefsky, Katherine Wells, John Rochester, Anna Cardenas, Christine Johnson, Bette Booth, Robert Ortiz and George Rivera.
