For many years, Style Weekly has been highlighting the inspirational, uplifting (young) people in the Richmond area and the selfless ways they make Richmond a better place.
SOAR365 is proud to announce that our Associate Vice President of Day and Respite Services, Emily Lehmann, has been named to this year’s list.
“The kind of folks included here don’t do what they do for awards or praise. They do it because they care about other people and they believe in their work,” writes Style Weekly’s Brent Baldwin in the preface to this year’s Top 40 Under 40 list.
“I am humbled and honored to be recognized as one of this year’s Top 40 Under 40,” said Emily Lehmann. “This a feature that I always read and I’m amazed by the talented people and the things they are doing to impact the region. I am proud to be one of them and to share with others the great work at SOAR365,” she added.
“Everyone at SOAR365 is extremely happy to see that Emily was included in this year’s Top 40 Under 40 list from Style Weekly. We have always known how special she is, and we’re so glad the rest of Richmond is recognizing the amazing work she does,” said John Walker, President and CEO of SOAR365. “Emily does great things every day for individuals with disabilities and their families. She truly lives our mission.”
