Laura Schaumberg, marketing assistant for the Paducah Convention and Visitors Bureau, has been selected as the "Young Leader of the Year" by the Four Rivers Business Journal. She was chosen from 10 peer-nominated finalists and received a $1,000 scholarship to use toward professional development.

Schaumberg was chosen for several reasons, including her recent induction to Destination Marketing Association International's "30 Under 30" training program and being the president of Rotaract - a service group for young professionals in western Kentucky. She is also a mentor at the Oscar Cross Boys & Girls Club and a member of the Kentucky Travel Industry Association's Education Committee.

We are extremely proud of Schaumberg and the Paducah CVB, which is a Simpleview client, for being excellent role models and examples for tourism industry professionals.
