Timothy Bush, vice president of sales and marketing of the Ruston Lincoln Convention and Visitors Bureau, (RLCVB) has been chosen for the first class of “Forty for the Future: Travel’s Leading Talent” by the Southeast Tourism Society (STS), an Atlanta-based professional association in the tourism industry.
Bush is one of four “Forty for the Future” recipients from Louisiana.
“Professionally this is a real highlight for me and my career in the tourism industry,” Bush said. “I am very honored to be amongst the inaugural class of this program.”
Until recently, Louisiana was one of the few states without a statewide audiology association, which is something local audiologists felt needed to change.
Steven Madix, assistant professor in the Louisiana Tech University Department of Speech, and Jerrilyn Frasier, speech-language pathologist and audiologist for the Department of Otolaryngology at Green Clinic, were two of the founders of the Louisiana Academy of Audiology and currently serve as president and vice president of governmental issues, respectively.
