Journal of Business seeks outstanding young professionals
By Mary Coffman
The Tri-Cities Area Journal of Business is seeking the area’s rising young stars of business to highlight in its Mid-Columbia Young Professionals awards. This is annual contest’s eighth year, and we’ve recognized some of the most outstanding young leaders, entrepreneurs and business owners in the community.
Nominees don’t have to be business owners. They can be professionals in any field, from doctors or lawyers, to chefs, winemakers or dental assistants. They need to have distinguished themselves within their career, company or industry and within the community. We’re looking for those young people who not only excel in their jobs, but also are passionate about their community and find ways to get involved and give back.
Last year’s winners were: Byron Martin, owner of Teknologize; Justin Christensen, R.E. Powell Distributing; Leo Martinez, Numerica Credit Union; Megan Savely, Frost Me Sweet; Preston House, Papa John’s; P. Simon Mahler, S.C.O.R.E.; Ryan Brovont, Columbia Valley Family Farms Inc.; and Travis Adamson, Blodgett, Mickelsen and Naef, P.S.
The nominations deadline is Aug. 31 and nominations will only be accepted electronically.
Nomination applications are available for download at www.tricitiesbusinessnews.com and complete applications must be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Handwritten or printed applications will not be accepted.
