From interviewing an astronaut for my Roanoke, Virginia, middle school’s newspaper in the 1970s to the work I do today at Wells Fargo, I enjoy creating “aha” moments for readers that tell them something they didn’t know. As the bank that helped link East and West and whose lineage includes a role in the birth of the American stock market, Wells Fargo is a treasure trove of untold stories.
