What is Top 10 in 10?

Young professionals are beginning to build their career paths and are striving toward success, growing their impact on our community. As the Cherokee County Chamber of Commerce strives to strengthen the business community and engage businesspeople of all ages, it was important for our organization to implement a young professionals recognition for Cherokee County’s potential future leaders.

The Top 10 in 10 ‘Young Professionals to Watch’ initiative was started in 2012 and designed to cultivate and showcase exceptional Cherokee County young professionals. Since its inception, the Chamber has recognized over 120 rising stars from industries across Cherokee County.

Coordinated by the Cherokee County Chamber, in partnership with Enjoy Cherokee Magazine, this recognition program focuses on Cherokee County residents between the ages of 20-40 who are self-starters and rising stars.

The Top 10 in 10 honorees represent a variety of organizations, from non-profits to government to businesses both small and large, and they hold a variety of roles in our community. What’s the one thing they all have in common? They are up-and-coming leaders who have their sights set on where they want to be in the next five to ten years.

These young professionals are involved in their community whether through volunteering or participating in community activities and organizations. Their outstanding work ethic, professionalism, and commitment help make their businesses and organizations thrive and make Cherokee County a better place.

Cherokee’s Top 10 in 10 honorees will have the opportunity to apply for consideration for Georgia Trend’s 40 under 40 statewide recognition.
