Haverhill's 25 Most
Influential People
One of Haverhill's greatest strengths is that there is no shortage of people working hard to make this city a better place to live. Every day, leaders throughout the community are making a positive difference for our schools, for the arts and events, for those less fortunate, and for the overall betterment of Haverhill. With that in mind, we asked you to nominate the people you think are "the most influential" - with an influential person defined as "one who has the power or capacity of causing an effect in our community in indirect or intangible ways. We received more than yo nominations and pared the list down to the 25 you will find on the following pages. We asked them all to share a little about themselves, including their proudest moments, biggest influences on their own lives and their life philosophies. Congratulations to our very own VP of Marketing and Community Relations, Leanne Eastman, for being recognized this year.
