ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

On Wednesday, Albany's Chamber of Commerce took time out to recognize 40 outstanding leaders in the community.

It's was all part of the 10th Annual 40 under Forty Luncheon at Doublegate County Club.

The honorees included a wide-range of people who work at the Marine Corps Logistics Base, Phoebe Putney, plus other businesses and industries. 

"It's just a great opportunity for our community to recognize their leadership and to continue to cultivate those potential leaders in the future," said Albany Chamber of Commerce Chairman Jenny Savelle.

WALB is also proud to announce that our very own News Director Bari Soash was one of this year's honorees.
