Eight Over 80

These older Delawareans are contributing to the state long past retirement. They were selected from more than 50 nominees and as we interviewed them, we were struck by their energy and passion. This group includes venerable civil rights pioneers, a longtime social entrepreneur, the co-founders of a statewide leadership development program, and a retired chief justice.  You can click on individual pictures to read profiles of each person.
