The Chamber established this award in 2014 to recognize young professionals in our community under the age of 40 for their outstanding career achievements, community service impact, and their vision of what Terrebonne Parish can be.
A panel of judges evaluated and scored each nomination on information provided in the following categories: reason for nomination, professional career achievements, community involvement, and vision and future aspirations for Terrebonne Parish. Honorees had to be over the age of 21 and under the age of 40 as of December 31, 2016.
