This year’s "5 Under 55" Honorees are Manny Negron with the Big Spring Convention and Visitors Bureau; Justin Myers with State National Bank; Adrian Calvio with State Farm; Christian Fair with the United Way of Big Spring and Howard County; and Amanda Duforat with the Big Spring Herald.

"I had someone mention a quote to me the other day; 'Service is the price we pay for the space we occupy,' Debbye ValVerede, Big Spring Area Chamber of Commerce Executive Director, said. " Each year we honor Man and Woman of the Year for their contributions over the years, but we have had a large group of young business professionals stepping up and making the choice to invest in their community lately, and we want to recognize them and their efforts.”
