Two recipients of the Augusta Metro Chamber of Commerce’s top young professionals award have also been honored as tops in the state.
Summer Finley Bell, a senior accountant for Serotta, Maddocks, Evans & Co. CPAs, and JaMia Jennings, an architect and project manager for the Army, have been chosen as two of Georgia Trend’s “40 Under 40.”
Each year, Georgia Trend magazine highlights 40 people under the age of 40 who are making an impact on their professions, their communities or the state.
All those named by the Augusta chamber as being among the Top 10 in 10 Young Professionals to Watch – developed in 2009 by the chamber in partnership with Augusta Magazine and the city of Augusta to annually highlight 10 professionals ages 25-35 in the Augusta region – were nominated for the Georgia Trend honor.
A recipient of the Southern Region Architect Award, Jennings is an architect and project manager for the engineering design branch of the Georgia Department of Public Works at Fort Gordon. She designs new facilities and renovates buildings to meet mission-essential requirements set forth in military standards and specifications.
Bell is an Augusta State University graduate who assists businesses and people with tax planning and preparation, and overseeing all payroll and property tax returns for clients.
