The Best And Brightest

Our 2003 roster of Georgia's young superstars, the seventh such list we have published, includes representatives from business, government, academia and the arts. This year's 40 Under 40 include an award-winning poet, a hospital administrator, an environmentalist, the state's youngest legislator, the man responsible for processing all student grant and loan disbursements in the United States, a pair of urban pioneers and a genuine hero.
