The Tri-Cities Area Journal of Business is proud to present the winners of this year’s Young Professionals awards. This class is a diverse group of individuals who have made outstanding contributions in their respective fields. Raul Contreras, assistant director of the Tri-Cities Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, and Melissa Torres, director of fire systems maintenance at Hanford Mission Integration Solutions, are just two examples of the exceptional talent that makes up this year’s honorees.

The event celebrating the winners will take place on Wednesday, May 15 at J. Bookwalter Winery in Richland. Tickets can be purchased on the Journal’s website. In addition to being recognized at the event, the winners will also be featured in a special supplement in the upcoming May edition of the Journal.

To be eligible for the award, individuals must be 40 years old or younger, work in Benton or Franklin counties, demonstrate excellence in their careers, and exhibit a commitment to charity work, leadership, and community involvement.
