In a special edition of the Puget Sound Business Journal, Ashesi President and Founder, Patrick Awuah was recognized among the top business leaders under the age of forty in the Puget Sound area. The annual award is given to forty young business people that show promise or have established themselves as leaders in the business community. Judged by a panel of four former award recipients and four established members of the business community, award winners are chosen for more than just their business savvy, but for their involvement in improving the community.

Patrick was honored along with other recipients of the award at a reception on the evening of September 10th at the Fairmont Olympic Hotel in downtown Seattle.

The award is truly a wonderful tribute to all that has been accomplished by Patrick and Ashesi over the last three years. The award comes in the wake of Patrick receiving an honorary Doctor of Laws degree in June from his alma mater, Swarthmore College. This has been an exciting couple of months for Patrick and Ashesi!
