RTD The Greatest Virginians

Below is the names of t he men and women who served as our jury as we sought to create our list of the greatest Virginians. We appreciate them donating their time in what hopefully was an interesting venture. Government officials (such as Tim Kaine), up-and-coming business leaders (such as Amy Campbell), those engaged in the arts (Stoner Winslett and Keith Martin), and historians and political scientists (such as Larry Sabato and Bland Whitley) made this project possible. We thank them all.
