Nominate a Young Memphian!

It's that time of year again.  Memphis Crossroads Magazine's annual Young Memphis issue is coming up and that means we need your nominations!  Do you know someone under 40, lives in Memphis, Tenn., and who, through their work, is pushing Memphis toward greatness?  I bet you do. In Memphis, we have a plethora of talented, young individuals who work in the arts, in business, and in the community, being innovative and creative.  

Let us know who you think should be featured in the Young Memphis issue!  In the comment section below or via email, tell me that person's name and a sentence or two on why you think that person should be a Greater Memphis Chamber Young Memphian. Nominations will be taken into consideration until Sunday, April 29th at midnight. Now, go!
