Yuma is blessed to have a vibrant community of young professionals who strive to make a difference here, each and every day.
Whether it’s in their professional capacities or personal missions – or often both – these people are making a positive impact on Yuma County.
This year, for the third year in a row, the Yuma Sun’s BIZ Magazine and the NexGen Leadership Council have partnered together to recognize our amazing young professionals and leaders in the 20 Under 40 Rising Star Awards program.
“It is so exciting to see the 20 Under 40 event go from an idea to now being a tradition in our Yuma community. As business and community leaders I believe it is our job to guide, encourage, assist and recognize the next generation of leaders,” said Matt Molenar, president of NexGen and owner of MGM Design.
The awards recognize 20 individuals between the ages of 18 and 40 who have excelled in their respective industries and who likewise are good citizens.
