The Winston-Salem State University Young Alumni Council (YAC) has announced the 2017 WSSU “40 Under 40” honorees.


“In 2013, we initiated the 40 Under 40 Awards to recognize young alumni at Winston-Salem State University who are emerging leaders,” said Sioban DayYAC co-chair. “We have another impressive class of accomplished women and men. It is our pleasure to recognize them and provide a forum for them to meet and engage with one another.”
