Dr. George Case Celebrated as One of Newburyport’s “40 Under 40”

The Greater Newburyport Chamber of Commerce has named NCS Music Director Dr. George Case as one of 40 top entrepreneurs and leaders under the age of 40 for 2017. The honorees were chosen for their tremendous impact in the community where they work, and for their ongoing dedication to making Newburyport a very special place to live, work and play.

All the honorees and their guests were invited to an honor ceremony and reception at Ceia Kitchen and Bar in Newburyport on September 29, 2017.  Representing NCS at this event in addition to Dr. Case were: NCS President Solomon Berman, NCS Community Outreach Director Kerri MacLennan, and NCS Logistics Director Ralph Johnson.
