Annual Meeting & New Board of Directors

On Friday March 16th, 2012 the Franklin Young Professionals met at Cat Creek Lodge for our annual business meeting.  At this meeting we presented awards to some of our members for their involvement and participation during the 2011-2012 corporate year.  Ten of our members received perfect attendance awards.  A few members received special awards for their superior dedication to the group and our mission.  The award recipients are as follows:
  • Most Active - Ashley Freeman
  • Most Enthusiastic - Erica Browning
  • Most Productive - Ryan Finn
  • FYP Mama of the Year - Jessica Jenkins
  • Seen But Not Heard Award - Johnathan Dean
We also had the extreme privilege of installing our new board of directors for the upcoming 2012-2013 corporate year.  Our charter board stepped down and handed over the reins to the new board members.  We were pleased to have a few of our previous board members stay on for this upcoming year, but also glad to see a number of new, fresh faces step up.

The Franklin Young Professionals are looking forward to another great year.  We are already working on some big plans for the year and some great opportunities to get involved with and help support our community.  We plan to continue to help out with and be a major supporter of the CareNet Weekend Backpack Program throughout the year.  Our "Adopt a Highway" stretch will also continue to maintained by the group quarterly, so keep your eyes peeled for us along US 441/Porter Street downtown.  Our group is also planning to participate in at least one more career fair this year, but eventually we hope to have more opportunities for involvement with the young people of Franklin.  

Special thanks to Cat Creek Lodge for hosting another great event for us.
