CONWAY, NH – A local woman has been named to the Union Leaders 40 under 40.

28-year-old Jessica Wright of Conway was nominated to the program, which recognizes some of the state’s brightest young achievers who have a record of professional and volunteer accomplishments in New Hampshire. This year’s class honors 28 women and 12 men from across the state.

Past honorees include Bode Miller, Kelly Ayotte, Frank Guinta, Jodi Piccoult, and John E. Sununu.

Wright, who grew up in the Valley, works at the Upper Saco Valley Land Trust, a local land conservation non-profit focused on “preserving land for community benefit”. Her work at the Land Trust draws on both her Master’s degree in Environmental Law and Policy and her undergraduate degree in Business Management. She is a founding member of the agricultural collaborative, Mt. Washington Valley Eaters & Growers (MWVEG) and chairs the young professionals group, STAY MWV. She also sits on the UNH Cooperative Extension Advisory Committee for Carroll County and Governor Chris Sununu’s Millennial Advisory Council.

A reception and awards program, sponsored by Citizens Bank, will be held on March 14 at the Grappone Conference Center in Concord. To purchase tickets and for more information, visit unionleader.com/forty.
