Now in its third year, the ODU Alumni Association’s recognition program was established “to honor graduates who have achieved exceptional feats and have created an indelible legacy all before the age of 40."
“I’m honored to be recognized with my fellow 2023 40 under 40 classmates,” said Vice Mayor Bethany. “Learning about all of the amazing things our alumni are doing across the world is truly inspiring.”
