Chamber seeking nominations for young professional awards

Sep. 26, 2012 @ 12:00 AM

HUNTINGTON - The Huntington Regional Chamber of Commerce's Young Professionals Committee is giving local citizens, businesses and organizations an opportunity to show their appreciation for young professionals by accepting nominations for the second annual Generation Huntington Awards program to recognize the next generation of leaders in the Tri-State.

The Generation Huntington program will recognize five young professionals who live or work in the Huntington area. Winners will be selected by a group of local business and community leaders based on their professional accomplishments, service to the community and efforts to develop their leadership skills in their workplace and in the community.

Last year's Generation Huntington winners were Amy Browning of St. Mary's Medical Center; Patrick Farrell of Guyan International; Nathan Myers of Pita Pit; Cindy McCarty of Huddleston Bolen LLP and Sarah Walling of Jenkins Fenstermaker PLLC.

The deadline to submit nominations is 5 p.m. Friday, Oct. 12. Nominees must live or work in Huntington or the Tri-State area and must be under the age of 40. Nominees do not have to be members of the Young Professionals Committee. Winners will be announced at the Huntington Regional Chamber of Commerce Volunteer Awards Luncheon in January 2013 at the Guyan Golf & Country Club.

Nomination forms are available on the YPC's website at www.huntingtonypc.com/. Contact Matt Lockhart at mlockhart@huddlestonbolen.com or 304-691-8317 or Charles Shumaker at charles.shumaker@chhi.org or 304-399-6742 with any questions.
