City Magazine is celebrating 10 years of young leadership. Every year, we post the Ones to Watch nomination form on our website and wait to see who will be the honored few to be chosen to represent the young professionals in our community. Being a Ones to Watch recipient is about much more than just being skilled at your job — we all go to work every day to get our job done. Ones to Watch is about the young people who are going above and beyond their job and stepping into the community as a volunteer to help our people in need. They give of their time, their skills, and their love for this community day in and day out. Over the last 10 years, we have watched these young professionals grow into such leadership positions as mayor of Jefferson City, United Way Campaign Chair, JCPS Board member, business owner, executive director, and top performer in their field. Congratulations to all of you for your success and continued support of Jefferson City.
We’re honored to present the 2018 Ones to Watch class. Out of 60 nominations, these 10 young leaders were chosen by a committee of past OTW recipients. This class is an impressive example of young professionals who have a heart to give back. Congratulations, again, and I can’t wait to see how you will be leading this community in 10 years!
