Hall of Fame Laureates

Creating a Legacy of Leadership

The Junior Achievement Business Hall of Fame honors community leaders who have been held to a standard that many may never achieve. In order to become a prestigious Laureate in the Hall of Fame, an individual's record of business achievement must demonstrate business excellence, vision and innovation, inspiring, courageous leadership, and community responsibility.

Laureates are chosen by previous honorees; a group of peers that live the values inherent to the free enterprise system and serve as excellent role models for young people.
