Mark Wheeler of Big Brothers Big Sisters in Juneau was recognized as one of "Alaska's Top Forty Under 40" for 2005 by the Anchorage Chamber of Commerce and Alaska Journal of Commerce.

"It's nice that our agency is getting recognized for the impact we're having on kids' lives across Southeast Alaska," Wheeler said. "The only thing I've done is had the sense to hire the right people, who have then gone out and recruited hundreds of fabulous volunteers. The volunteer Big Brothers and Big Sisters are the ones truly making an impact on their communities."

Award recipients were chosen based on demonstrated professional excellence and a commitment to their community.
