Have you heard of it? I had not heard of a 40 Under 40 award until I saw it on Instagram. I thought it was such a special event and an awesome way to recognize others in the community. (Yes, a rare and maybe even a first of us together showing up on the blog). I mean, I think we have other appearances from when the kids were younger – with events and family photos but you know how things get busy.
The 40 Under 40 awards recognizes Bright Young Leaders who are making a difference at work, that in-turn, impacts the community positively. Here’s more information about it. And here. We were thrilled that my husband was selected to receive such an award this year.
Women of Influence
At this ceremony, honors were given out to Women of Influence also, making it two-in-one event. More from Business Journal. I’m telling you, the work some of these women do, I’m not sure how they can keep up with anything else. This one girl received about 3 different awards for her Salon and for other jobs and side jobs she manages. One of her Salon employees also received an award. That shows how outstanding that manager really is.
Congratulations to My Husband – What an Honor!
My husband was an honoree at the ceremony! He has been a dedicated worker for as long as he’s been employed. His main role as College VP is nothing short of hard work and determination to get those students in college. He’s turned down so many job offers because so many companies in his field would love him to work for them. He’s also President of a couple other College Related groups that he travels for meetings with them on the regular.
The Award Ceremony
The event was held downtown, Charleston SC at the Francis Marion Hotel on October 25, 2023. The Award Ceremony was simply a dinner and awards. It was a fun get together with supporting co-workers and other recognized and unrecognized folks in the community. I said unrecognized because some of us were just supporters of those getting the awards:) Some of my husband’s team of workers came out to support him. It was a very fun time celebrating and watching everyone get awards both men and women. We (his co-workers and us) also got Starbucks coffee on the way out as we waited the long wait to get our cars from the parking garage.
Turned out, a department from my husband’s company also sponsored the event. I was surprised and impressed!
She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness (Proverbs 31:27).
