Oklahoma Gazette‘s Forty Under 40 Class of 2017

OKLAHOMA CITY – Oklahoma Gazette (OKG) hosted the Forty Under 40 Class of 2017 Awards Reception on Tuesday, Nov. 14 at Vast 2 on the 50th Floor of Devon Tower. The evening provided guests and honorees an opportunity to meet and learn more about each other while taking in some of the best views in the state.

High achievement among Oklahoma City’s young innovators, entrepreneurs and creatives is never a surprise, but in 2017, competition to get into Oklahoma Gazette’s Forty Under 40 was extraordinary. As OKC continues its trajectory as a city of boundless possibilities, much of the fuel for this growth comes from young people with big ideas and skills to match.  As our population grows, OKC remains a small-town city making the Forty Under 40 recognizable to Gazette readers. Far from being remote and unavailable, the members of the 2017 class of Forty Under 40 make noticeable, palpable, impacts on our daily lives. They lead by example and make us feel proud of the city we call home. More than anything, these 40 people will be responsible for how OKC will look, feel, work, play, eat and thrive in the years to come. This is the future of OKC. This is Forty Under 40.

OKG Associate Publisher James Bengfort welcomed honorees and guests to the awards ceremony and provided details on the Forty Under 40 process and how the selections were determined. OKG Editor George Lang introduced each member of the Forty Under 40 Class of 2017 while sharing a bit about each honoree, highlighting why each deserved to be selected as a 2017 honoree.  A more detailed bio on each honoree was published in the commemorative awards magazine provided to each guest. The magazine was reprinted in its entirety in the Nov. 15 issue of Oklahoma Gazette and is available online at okgazette.com.

2017 event sponsors included Citizen Potawatomi Nation and Oklahoma Shirt Company.  Additional sponsorship was provided by Republic National Distributing Company, which generously donated the evening’s beverages including a selection of  Conundrum White and Red wines along with several choices of Shiner beers. Guests enjoyed appetizers of seared rare ahi tuna tartare, Low Country kimchee served on a wonton chip, wild mushroom and Parmesan tarts and bacon-wrapped tenderloin bites with blue cheese, sage and a balsamic glaze — all prepared by the award-winning Vast culinary team.

Wonderful blog! Do you have any recommendations for aspiring writers?
I'm planning to start my own blog soon but I'm a little lost on everything.
Would you recommend starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for
a paid option? There are so many options out there that I'm completely confused ..
Any ideas? Thanks!

Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you
knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates.
I've been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe
you would have some experience with something like this. Please let me know if you run into anything.
I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your
new updates.

Hi, I think your site might be having browser compatibility issues.
When I look at your blog in Firefox, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other
then that, awesome blog!
