What makes the Walla Walla Valley such a wonderful place to live? Is it the sweeping vistas, the mild weather and the rural lifestyle? There are many reasons to love this Valley, but at the Union-Bulletin we know that what makes our area special is the people. “39 Under 39” will annually profile 39 people in the Walla Walla Valley who are age 39 and younger working with vitality and enthusiasm to benefit our communities through leadership in business, education, health care, arts and culture, agriculture, nonprofits and public service.
