40 rising stars in Vermont

Posted: Updated:
SOUTH BURLINGTON, Vt. -

Some of Vermont's up-and-coming young professionals were the stars of the show Thursday in South Burlington.

Vermont Business Magazine honored 40 new Rising Stars from around the state at a ceremony at the DoubleTree Hotel.

They were selected from 150 applicants for their commitment to business growth -- professional excellence and community involvement. Organizers say the goal is to ensure Vermont keeps its young talent right here at home.

"The youth of this state are leaving at an alarming rate and we need to show the younger generation -- the kids in high school, the kids in college -- that we have some great young people that work in this state. That are doing great things not only in their businesses but in the communities where they live," John Boutin, Vermont Business Magazine said.

WCAX photographer Robynn Beams was among the honorees at the ceremony. She attended with her dad and brother.
