The Marion County Development Commission (MCDC) announced on Oct. 7 that nominations are now being accepted to honor 10 young professionals in the Red Rock Area.

The purpose of the annual award is to highlight the impact young adults are making on our communities, encourage young adults to become involved as volunteers and highlight the benefits for young adults to live and work in Marion County.

“Our young professionals provide great contributions to our communities and companies in the county,” said Carla Eysink, MCDC Executive Director. “The Marion County Development Commission works to promote the Red Rock Area, and these awards will be used to showcase how young professionals impact our communities and companies as mentors. We want to tell the stories of how our communities make great places for young adults to develop leadership skills.”

Companies and organizations are encouraged to nominate individuals from around the county and from various occupations. Nominees must live and work in the county and be between the ages of 18 to 40 on Dec. 1, 2019.

Nominations are being accepted until Nov. 22. Recipients will be announced on Jan. 30, 2020. To receive a nomination form and complete rules, contact the MCDC at carla@redrockarea.com.
