October 14--  The Executive Director of the Vidalia Onion Committee has been named by the business magazine "Georgia Trend" to its annual "40 Under 40," list.

Susan Percy is the magazine's managing editor, "This is something we've been doing for 15 years and its our way of recognizing young high achievers from throughout the state and sharing their stories with our readers," she says.

Percy says that's the kind of leadership which makes Georgia Trend take notice. "We just want to remind our readers the next generation of leaders is coming up to make our state and their particular corner of the state a better place to live and work and that's what we hope to achieve with our "40 Under 40," she notes.

Brannen is most proud of bringing the Vidalia Onion Museum to reality and says it took a lot of people to make it happen.

"Really and truly the state and the country has paid attention to the fact that we in this area have been able to build a museum around the Vidalia Onion.  I think that's a big deal for all of us and if they want to put me on a list of 40 people and recognize me for that, I certainly appreciate it, but it was a collaborative effort," she says.
