Each summer, Peoria Magazines hosts a social event and networking opportunity for 40 Leaders Under Forty alumni, presenting the 40 Leaders Alumnus of the Year award to a previous award winner who has continued to make an impact on the Greater Peoria community. This year, we are proud to name Carol Merna the 2020 40 Leaders Alumnus of the Year.
Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 40 Leaders Alumni Social is cancelled for this year. Instead, Peoria Magazines will honor Carol Merna and her accomplishments at a virtual celebration on Facebook Live on Thursday, August 27, 2020 at 4:00pm CDT. Please mark your calendars and join us to celebrate this remarkable community leader, friend and colleague!
