Six community leaders pored over more than 60 nominations for this year´s Daily Herald Media 20 Under Forty recognition program.
The judges chose the top 20 after hours of consideration.
And what a lineup they´ve selected.
"Her …civic activities are not comparable to anyone in the community," judges wrote about one honoree.
About another of the 20: "Wow! What a tremendous leader in our community."
And another: Her "commitment to excellence in every area of her life shines through."
