The Forty Under 40 Awards honor 40 individuals 39 years of age and younger who go above and beyond at work and in the community to make a difference. KPC Media Group, which sponsors the awards, said the young northeast Indiana professionals were chosen by a panel of distinguished judges from a record-breaking number of entries.

In addition to serving on the Trine faculty, Watson is founder and CEO of Blaire Biomedical, a company developing a handheld device that eventually will perform multiple blood tests in real time when linked to a smartphone. The project has been the focus of Trine senior design projects over the past several years.
