When the Nob Hill Gazette’s editorial team gathered to discuss a concept for our 2022 A-List, it was only November, that fleeting feel-good month when boosters were kicking in and few of us even knew “omicron” was a Greek letter, much less the name of the most transmissible COVID variant yet.

While we could not sit them down for their portraits amid the surge, we did know that the people we had identified as the pillars of this year’s A-List more than stood firm: 10 impressive individuals making an impact across generations, from a teenager who underwent a heart transplant to a centenarian who may just hold the simple secret to world peace. In between, we found folks from industry and philanthropy, activism and the arts, sports and storytelling — each from a decade of life when they are hitting a notable stride.
