The mothers, the millennials, and the mavens. Changing our communities.
This is our seventh annual unveiling of 50 amazing women who are raising the bar in their communities, serving as beacons of light in their industries, and forcing change for the greater good. Meet this West Virginia Wonder Woman, Diana Sole Walko, and many more that are creating a better West Virginia with their can-do attitudes and Mountain State spirit.
Telling West Virginia’s Story
Diana Sole Walko is passionate about West Virginia and telling its stories. “West Virginians haven’t told their stories very well, or very often, especially in visual form,” she says. “So it’s been my passion to tell those stories, whether it’s through a corporate piece, a historical documentary, or a biography focused on our natives who have excelled.”
She founded MotionMasters video production company in 1987 and continues to love her career, especially getting to know people and forming new relationships. She believes that we’re all called to do something to make our communities better places. As one of the founders of the Charleston Area Alliance and a former volunteer for Habitat for Humanity who helped start ReStore, she was raised to give back.
