Ten "Forever Young" awards are given annually to influential leaders who have acted as mentors to the network of more than 300 young professionals in the organization.

According to Coast Young Professionals, "Forever Young" candidates are persons of professional integrity who exemplify the spirit of service to their professions and who have, by their leadership, made a significant contribution to the advancement of a Coast Young Professionals member's career.

"Dorothy truly has a passion for volunteering, and this award highlights her efforts," said Edmond E. Hughes, Ingalls' vice president of human resources and administration. "It would be extremely difficult for me to quantify the time and dedication she invests in our community. I am honored that Coast Young Professionals recognizes these contributions."

Coast Young Professionals is an organization of the Mississippi Gulf Coast Chamber of Commerce dedicated to developing leaders in Mississippi, Alabama and Louisiana. The organization implements programs, community service projects and special events to engage this young workforce and provide tools to better their careers.
