SHERIDAN — Every spring, The Sheridan Press recognizes young professionals who go above and beyond in the special section “20 Under 40.” This year’s nominees will be honored at a happy hour at Black Tooth Brewing Co. on June 18 from 5-7 p.m.

From an impressive list of nominations, a panel at the newspaper selects the community’s most innovative executives, politicians, sportsmen, entrepreneurs, artists and up-and-comers. These young leaders contribute to the community in their personal and professional lives, ushering Sheridan County into the next generation.

The Sheridan Press will release the special section revealing this year’s nominees in the weekend edition on June 15.

At the happy hour on June 18, the first 50 people to arrive will enjoy a complimentary craft beer; Sheridan Press Publisher Kristen Czaban will give a special toast honoring the nominees at 5:45 p.m. Local musician Martha Tate, with Joel Saur and Cooper Quarterman, will close the evening with a live set. Throughout the event, guests may enter a raffle to win two tickets to Chris Stapleton’s concert in Billings, Montana, on Aug. 2.

No need to register; sponsored by Forward Sheridan, this event is open to the public.
