During the event, leadership of Livingston Young Professionals transitioned from outgoing Chairman Kevin Foster to the 2019-20 Chairman Ross Kinchen. Foster carried on a tradition started by Seal and presented Kinchen with bedazzled sneakers, symbolizing the “big shoes” he will fill as the LYP chairman.
Winners of the Livingston Future 5 include Jamie Felder, of the Livingston Parish Sheriff’s Office; Ashley Freeman, of Albany; Blake Harris, of Boyer, Hebert, Ables & Angelle; Nikki Lavergne, of the Livingston Parish school system; and Kacie Stewart, of Stewart Family Medicine.
