Congratulations to our 2022 Community Leaders

Each year, we recognize young community leaders with Top 20 Under 40 Award. Showcasing twenty leaders—all under the age of 40—the program recognizes individuals who have distinguished themselves in our community. In turn, Top 20 Under 40 intends to motivate other young leaders throughout Acadiana.
