The award, sponsored by KVYP and KTVO, honored local young professionals nominated for their professional and personal achievement, as well as their service to the community.

The banquet’s keynote speaker, Ralph Cupelli, assistant to the provost and vice president of academic affairs, spoke of the unique professional opportunities available to young professionals in Kirksville. He attributed this, in part, to the opportunities provided by Truman and other high profile employers in the area.

Young wrote in his personal statement that his highest professional achievement to date was having graduated from Truman.
