Spotlight to Shine on ‘Forty Under 40’ Winners

Lake Ontario Conference Center the place to be June 11

    A chief financial officer, a fire department chief and an ER doctor are among a group of 40 people in Oswego County who will receive the 2013 Forty Under 40 award.

    More than 200 people are expected to attend a breakfast event that will honor those individuals. They are under 40 years of age and have been selected from a pool of 77 nominations, a record number. This is the fourth time the Oswego County Forty Under 40 has taken place.

    The breakfast—billed as “Breakfast Tribute to Our Community’s Next Generation of Leaders”—will take place at 8 a.m. June 11 at the newly built Lake Ontario Conference Center at 26 E. First St., Oswego.

    TV personality Jackie Robinson, an anchorwoman who recently retired as anchor of Action News 3 Today in Central New York (WSTM NBC3) in Syracuse, will host the program.

    The event is open to the public. A limited number of tickets are still available. Ticket price is $30 per person and tickets can be purchased by calling 342-8020.

    "Forty Under 40" has been organized by Oswego County Business Magazine and sponsored by Pathfinder Bank, Oswego Health, SUNY Oswego and Bond, Schoeneck & King Attorneys.

    The event’s goal is to recognize those in the community under 40 years of age who have made a difference in the community while achieving professional success.

    Five community leaders selected the recipients: Marion Cicciarelli, Oswego Health; Jeff Grimshaw, SUNY Oswego; Beth Hilton, Greater Oswego-Fulton Chamber of Commerce; Scott DelConte, Bond, Schoeneck and King, PLLC; and, Robert Butkowski, Pathfinder Bank.

    Among the criteria used in the selection process were professional accomplishment, civic leadership, community work and achievements/awards.
