This illustrious organization was founded on the principle that everyone can be successful and have a voice to speak their ideas, even people who've been given a name as plain as one given to millions each year, Steve! Every so often, The Axis of Stevil takes pleasure in shining the proverbial spotlight on a Steve who shows excellence in their field.

All great Steves think alike and when two or more Steve’s get together, magic happens. Steves also understand the importance of education in order to improve life for future generations. Modesty is a trait these exemplary individuals all share, and so we salute the second Steve behind the forbidden fruit, Steven Wozniak!
