Business Expert And Author Dr. David Washington Selected As Top 25 Finalist For The Outstanding Young Americans By The United States Junior Chamber (Jaycees)

RALEIGH, N.C., April 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Dr. David Washington, Managing Partner of Washington & Company and author of Life Is a Choice: A Guide to Success in Life , was recently selected to be in the top 25 finalists to compete for the Ten Outstanding Young Americans (TOYA) award presented by the United States Junior Chamber (Jaycees).

The TOYA award is one of the most prestigious awards in the country and is given to people who exemplify immense accomplishment and/or leadership in the community. The award was initiated in 1938, has been awarded annually since 1940, and has included such individuals as President John F. Kennedy, President Bill Clinton, Vice President Joe Biden, and Quarterback Peyton Manning.

"I am incredibly humbled by this recognition and honor," says Dr. Washington, who also speaks to business organizations, associations and educational institutions about leadership, strategy and motivation. "It is great to be considered for such an illustrious and distinguished award as the TOYA."

Winners are selected on their achievement or contribution in at least three of the following areas: personal improvement or accomplishment; financial success or economic innovation; social improvement to major contemporary problems; philanthropic contribution or voluntary service; politics or government service; scientific or technological contributions; legal reform; cultural achievement; academic leadership or accomplishment; moral and religious leadership; athletic accomplishment; success in the influence of public opinion; any other important contribution to the community, state, or nation.

Dr. Washington was nominated on the basis of his personal accomplishment of overcoming a difficult childhood and his ability to achieve success. "My childhood required me to grow up very fast to help my family survive," explains Dr. Washington. "I was raised with limited resources; however, I thank God for a strong mother and the determination to achieve success."
