The Young Professionals Association of Louisville (YPAL) is so excited to announce, your 2020 YPAL Award winners. With the support of our membership and our community, we relaunched our YPAL Awards program in 2020 to celebrate the awesome work young professionals are doing in the Greater Louisville Area, especially our YPAL members. We overwhelmed by your response and are grateful to everyone who submitted a nomination and applied. We are so impressed by the amazing things young professionals are doing in our community and are excited to honor them this year and in perpetuity.

This year’s YPAL Award recipients are 10 diverse young professionals who all have one thing in common, they are an exemplar of the YPAL mission, to connect, engage and develop. Each award winner is dedicated to connecting others, engaging in their community and developing themselves and others, to advance the impact of young professionals in our community and they have proven that time and time again.

One of our award winners said it best, ‘it’s great to be awarded for doing something I like to do.’ Congratulations to our award winners, committee and everyone who made this possible! We grateful YPAL is a part of your story. Please join us in celebrating and welcoming our 2020 YPAL Award Winners!
