PRLog - June 27, 2014 - BAKERSFIELD, Calif. -- "For Bakersfield Life's second annual 20 Under 40 People to Watch feature, close to 100 upcoming local young professionals between 18 and 39 years old were nominated. It was difficult to choose, but in the end, Bakersfield Life's selection committee could only honor 20 of these shining stars who are doing brilliant things for the city they call home. Each leader is making their mark in a different way; some own their own businesses while others have put in time and love to causes dear to their heart." (BakersfieldLife.com)
