SAVANNAH The Georgia Southern University Alumni Association has announced their “40 under 40” Class of 2020. 

The “40 Under 40” program, in its fifth year, recognizes young alumni who have made significant strides in business, leadership, community, educational or philanthropic endeavors. 

The “40 Under 40” honorees were chosen by a selection committee that reviewed each individual’s professional expertise and achievements. The selection process began with nominations in March with more than 240 alumni nominated for this year’s class. 

According to the 40 Under 40 page, honorees must have attended Georgia Southern or Armstrong State University, and “and aspire to uphold the University’s core values of collaboration, academic excellence, discovery and innovation, integrity, openness and inclusion, and sustainability.”
