Fifteen young business leaders and entrepreneurs have distinguished themselves with their service to the community, and the Greater Minden Chamber is recognizing that service by nominating them for this year’s 15 Under 40 Top Young Professionals.
“Not knowing what this year was going to be like, and if we were even going to be able to have an evening like tonight, the Chamber still pursued it, moved forward, and received some amazing nominations for this year’s Awards Gala. We are always amazed at the amount of deserving young professionals that we have here in Webster Parish,” said Jana Morgan, President of the Greater Minden Chamber.
