Each year, young professionals in the Shreveport region are selected for the 40 Under 40 list based on values such as achievement, experience and innovation, vision, leadership, and community involvement.

This year’s class is comprised of a wonderful array of northwest Louisiana’s best and brightest young professionals who are making a difference in their professional industries as well as in their communities,” said YPI President Kourtney Washington.
