A Jacksonville resident has been named one of the Springfield Business Journal’s 2014 Forty Under 40, recognizing her as one of the top outstanding young leaders in West Central Illinois.

Brittany Henry, the Executive Director of the Jacksonville Area Convention and Visitors Bureau, was given the honor at a reception on Tuesday at the Sangamon Auditorium Center in Springfield.

The Forty Under 40 program is currently in its 18th year, honoring citizens who are extremely involved in the communities where they reside, both through their professional lives and their volunteer service.

Henry’s community involvement includes the Jacksonville Rotary Club, the Jacksonville Art Association, Young Professionals Network, Jacksonville Main Street Board, Jacksonville Chamber of Commerce Board, Mayor’s Development Group and many others.
