In every community, no matter how small, notable residents emerge, contributing to and changing society for the better. These ordinary people leave imprints on the hearts and minds of those who came to know them. They work hard to make a positive change in their lives, and oftentimes, in the lives of others. In turn, these people leave a mark on the larger fabric of society. Methodist Town is full of men and women who grew up to make a difference in St. Petersburg and beyond. It’s residents went on to become pastors, midwives, police chiefs, education board members, doctors, and professional athletes.
These are their stories.
