The Log Cabin in Holyoke hosted Business West's 40 under Forty Gala Thursday evening, celebrating rising stars in our communities.
Western Mass News anchor and reporter Cherise Leclerc, now a member of the 40 Under Forty Class of 2015, was one of the lucky ones to receive an award.
This year's group is said to be one of the most diverse, representing almost every sector from across the Pioneer Valley.
More than 135 nominations were received for the Class of 2015, with entries scored by a panel of five judges who weighed everything from career accomplishments to involvement in the community.
Those with the 40 highest scores made the list.
Congratulations to Cherise and the others recognized!
