For 15 years, The State has annually honored 20 young people who are making a difference in the Midlands. I’m a bit biased, but I think we’ve made some excellent choices through the years. The 280 people we honored during the first 14 years not only achieved success before the age of 40, but continued their great work in the years after we spotlighted them.

They became — or continued to be — successful politicians, business people and educators. Their efforts, both on the job and in their spare time, have made the Midlands better. We continue to salute them.

This year’s group of honorees is no different. They are lawyers, engineers, school administrators, franchise owners and health care professionals. They fight human trafficking, volunteer in local schools, support those with disabilities, raise money for cancer research, and help military veterans adjust to life back home.
