Rhinelander organization highlights young adults for work in community
RHINELANDER - A Rhinelander organization wanted to celebrate young adults making a difference in their community. 

Forward Rhinelander announced the first-ever "Top 40 Under 40" winners last week.


The group got more than 50 nominations. The winners included the owners of Culver's, an accountant, and marketing director. 

"The other 10 under 40 [winners], we've either worked with them [and] we know them really well so it's kind of cool to get that group of people together and we've already know them and done business with them," said Culver's owner Josh Clark. 

Forward Rhinelander also wanted to do this because it wanted to showcase Rhinelander as a great place to live with young people and available jobs. 

"We do a lot of share nights which is where we donate 10 percent of the sales from that back to different organizations. What's cool is after five years we're doing multiple with the same organizations," said Clark. 

This year's winners include:
Matthew Berth
Dwight Webb
Brandon Karaba
Tarsie Goes
Ben Meyer
Jen and Josh Clark
Brett Aylesworth
Mike Cheslock
Jessie Dick
Matthew Whalen
