The Aberdeen Area Chamber of Commerce kicked off the 2nd Annual Top 4 Under 40 Program on March 1, 2023. This program recognizes the efforts of young leaders in our community and region. Last year’s recipients were: David Novstrup, Bea Smith, Spencer Sommers and Sarah Viola.
Top 4 Under 40 is a program the Aberdeen Area Chamber of Commerce started in 2022 to recognize the efforts of young leaders in our community and region. All nominees for the award must be between the ages of 21 & 39; are Aberdeen and/or Brown County residents; exemplify the qualities of a true leader and Aberdonian; are enroute or have already truly impacted our community for the better through their career and profession, community & civic involvement and personal or philanthropic efforts; and make our community a better place because they’re in it.
