The Albany Herald and Emerge Albany honored Albany's Top 40 under 40 today at a special luncheon.
Event organizers say it's nice to take time to honor unsung heroes in our community. Awardees are professionals from across Southwest Georgia who excel at work and in their community.
Award recipients come from a variety of backgrounds including medical, education, legal, communication, the arts, and more. Honoree Demetrius Love says the variety is what makes the group unique. "Southwest Georgia has all kinds of different leaders. We can really grasp them and help the good life city take a step forward" says Love.
Some awardees may be nominated to be named Georgia's top 40 under 40, and in Albany's five short years of having the program a few have been selected.
The Albany Herald newspaper will have a special "Southwest Georgia 40 under 40" insert in this Sunday's paper.
