EDITOR’S NOTE: In honor of its 40th anniversary, the CCCU launched a new award last fall: the CCCU Young Alumni Award. Utilizing social media and online voting, thousands of people cast their votes for 30 nominees, narrowing the selection down to 12 finalists before casting their votes for the final winner. Featured here are the stories of the winner and two runnersup; look to the summer issues of our online newsletter eAdvance for stories about the remaining finalists.
