As seen in the 318 Forum Magazine, November 2018, Shreveport, Louisiana: 



Each year for more than a decade, the Greater Shreveport Chamber’s Young Professionals Initiative has highlighted 40 of our region’s most dynamic and engaged young entrepreneurs, executives, managers and professionals in the public, private and nonprofit sectors. Over that time more than 400 individuals have been recognized, and many have gone on to become local leaders in business, politics and public service. 40 Under Forty is our chance to celebrate the best of what our community is by spotlighting those who are both excelling in their profession and making an impact in our community.

Also each year, the judges select one Young Professional of the Year. This is the individual among the 40 who exemplifies the spirit of 40 Under Forty. The latest recipients have included Dr. Megan Gardner, who was featured recently in a story about her work with childhood dyslexia; Dr. Julie Mook Broadwell, who balances her breast cancer practice with traveling missionary work; Dr.

Melva Williams, who is helping to expand Southern University's footprint in Shreveport; Dr. John Chidlow, whose company, Innolyzer Labs, is pioneering one-of-a-kind, lab-on-a-chip analysis devices; Shreveport Magazine publisher, Shreveportant founder and restauranteur Pete John; and Lt. Col. Bill Fish, who leads the 11th Bomb Wing at Barksdale Airforce Base.

As the profiles in the following pages will demonstrate, this year's class once again brings together a group of highly engaged, impactful individuals. The group includes physicians, lawyers, teachers, professors, small business owners, as well as men and women from the private and nonprofit sectors. Each of them deserves our recognition for what they bring to our community. Take a look at the following pages and see who you would pick as our Young Professional of the Year. We'll find out who the judges selected on Saturday, Dec. 1!
