STS Enterprise Leaders Start 2019 Among Young Professionals Recognized

The halfway point for quarter-one of 2019 has just been passed, and STS Enterprise Corporation is already buzzing in the city of Memphis. Over the past two months, five of STS Enterprise’s leaders and coaches have been recognized. The 501(c)3 nonprofit dedicated to developing and empowering the next generation of Mid-South leaders is living out its motto of, “Making Excellence The Norm.”

Two STS Enterprise team members were honored on the 2019 Memphis Flyer “20<30” list. Each year, since 2009, the publication has released the list that spotlights young people shaping the future of Memphis.

This year’s list included Alton Cryer, co-founder of STS Enterprise, and business development officer at Orion. Also included was Rachel Anderson, STS Enterprise executive team member, and instructional designer at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, ALSAC.

Next, three STS Enterprise team members were named as finalists for Memphis Business Journal’s “Best of the Bar” awards. For three years, the publication has recognized the top legal minds in the Memphis and Mid-South in the areas of private firm attorneys, public service attorneys, in-house counselors, associates, and for lifetime achievement. Awards will be presented on March 5, at Memphis Botanic Garden.

The finalists included: Corbin Carpenter, STS Enterprise Board of Directors Chairman, and managing member at Carpenter Law PLLC; Brittany Williams, STS Strive Assistant Director, and attorney at University of Memphis Cecil C. Humphreys School of Law and City of Memphis; and JB Smiley Jr., STS Strive Coach, and attorney at Smiley & Associates.

“We are setting the tone for 2019 by once again setting the standard for coaching youth. Everyday we encourage and challenge our students to make excellence the norm. and when our students see our leaders embrace that same mantra and receive recognition it inspires them to continue setting the standard in their personal lives,” said Jeremy Calhoun, co-founder of STS Enterprise. “I send heartfelt congratulations to all of our STS family members who received an accolade!”
