Congratulations on achieving this great honor! Once you and your family and friends finish celebrating, please make note of the following information that will come in handy in the coming months.
Save the Date
First and foremost, mark your calendar for the awards luncheon – and don’t forget to tell your friends, family members and colleagues. You can even tell your frenemies if you’d like to make them jealous. This year’s keynote speaker is Ernie Johnson (ABJ ’78), co-host of TNT’s “Inside the NBA” and TBS Major League Baseball announcer.

We hope you will continue to celebrate with your alma mater through the weekend as the Bulldogs take on Samford University ‘tween the Hedges in Athens. You will be given two complimentary block seating tickets to the game on Saturday, September 16 so you can call the Dawgs with fellow honorees! More details about this opportunity will be emailed to you as September approaches.
Please share this exciting news via your social media accounts and ask your family and friends to do the same – you deserve the recognition! You can download images for Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter to share online. The hashtag below will be used all year, so plug it whenever you can.
This is a group of movers and shakers! If your name, title, employer, hometown information is incorrect or changes between now and the luncheon, email Frances Beusse so it remains accurate on the 40 Under 40 website.
