About Corpus Christi Under 40

Corpus Christi Under 40 exists to honor the men and women dedicated to making a difference in Corpus Christi. Be it in education, health care, or technology, it is those individuals with the perseverance and determination that create culture and opportunity for others in our community.

Created in 2006 by Rosaura Bailey and Elisa Fogle, CCU40 is dedicated to not only recognizing oustanding Corpus Christi citizens, but also for the betterment of our community. CCU40 is an event honoring the accomplishments of men and women under 40 years of age who have made significant contributions in their professional fields as well as through service in the community. The event will not only raise awareness of our young professional community but it will also give a percentage of its proceeds to charity.

Each year 40 outstanding individuals are awarded recognition through a Fall nomination and scoring process. In addition, one of these persons is honored as the “Person of the Year.” This goes to a member of the CCU40 honorees who is a near-perfect example of a true hard-working professional, both in terms of their career and service to the Coastal Bend community.

If you have any questions, please call 361.825.2352 or email us at CCU40@YBPCB.com
