The Northern Kentucky Chamber and NKY Young Professionals announced the 2021 NextGeneration Leader award winners last night at Hotel Covington. 

The finalists were chosen by a review panel of community leaders from among nearly 90 applications submitted from across the region. The three highest scored applications in each category are recognized as finalists and last night, the top score in each category was honored as the category winner.

The NGLAs salute and applaud young professionals ages 40 and under for significant professional accomplishments, demonstrated leadership, and community impact.

Additionally, Shannan Boyer, president and founder of Scooter Media in Covington, was named the 2021 NKYP Legend Award recipient. Boyer received the award in recognition of her impressive 20-plus years working in communications on a local, regional, and national level. She is best-known for founding her PR agency, Scooter Media, in 2012.  

“Shannan embodies the spirit of NKYP by paying it forward and giving back to the region. As an original member back when the program was known at Legacy, she continues to stand behind this program and connects with young professionals to give guidance and advice,” said Ellen Bates, 2020-21 Chair for NKYP.

“It’s humbling to receive this award, especially when I think about how far I’ve come since being involved in NKYP during the early years. This impactful program provides our region’s young professionals with opportunities to engage, connect and grow early in their careers,” Boyer explained. 
They have been presented in seven categories over the past ten years.
