SHERIDAN — Accompanying the weekend newspaper, The Sheridan Press published a special section revealing the young professionals who go above and beyond: “20 Under 40.” 

From an impressive list of nominations, a panel at the newspaper selected 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 Press staff interviewed each of the nominees, diving into their past and present to uncover what they bring to the table.
