The Meridian Star and Meridian Home & Style’s Top twenty under 40 presented by Mississippi Power are featured in the latest issue of Meridian Home & Style magazine, which is available with home delivery, at The Meridian Star office and at local businesses.
These 20 young men and women under the age of 40 were selected by a committee from more than 50 nominations from members of the greater Meridian community. They demonstrate excellence in their professions, but also are their commitment to the community. The young men and women are the area’s emerging business leaders, educators, spiritual leaders, military personnel, medical professionals and people from all walks of life.
“These individuals represent the best among their peers and have shown their commitment to the future of our community,” said Ida Brown, editor of Meridian Home & Style magazine.
