Community leaders and business professionals gathered in Beau’s Magnolia Ballroom to honor the Top 10 Business Leaders Under 40 and the Top Oustanding Community Leaders at the annual awards breakfast.

One Coast Awards were created to continue the ideal that one Coast is a regional belief that our common interests far outweigh any differences.

“Being involved in the community is super important; being a leader and giving back to the organizations and the people around you is super important,” said award recipient Gabrielle Rose. “As a young professional, I realize the importance of mentorship and being sure that I make an impact on the community around me so I definitely would encourage anybody to get involved in organizations across the Coast and really network and get to know people because its so important to give back to your community.”

The One Coast Awards are the re-branding of the former Roland Weeks Hall of Fame, the Sun Herald Top 10 Under 40 and Community Leader awards.
