The UGA Alumni Association recently unveiled the members of the 40 Under 40 Class of 2016. This program, in its sixth year, recognizes outstanding young UGA alumni younger than age 40.
This year, nearly 400 nominations were submitted. Selections were based on the graduates’ commitment to a lifelong relationship with UGA and their successes in both personal and professional endeavors.
This year’s class includes alumni in a variety of industries ranging from law to optometry, and it includes current and former NFL players and an award-winning country music artist.
The 2016 honorees will be celebrated during the 40 Under 40 Awards Luncheon Sept. 8 at Flourish Atlanta and is open to the public.
The list of this year’s 40 Under 40 honorees is at alumni.uga.edu/40u40.
