JA St. Louis Business Hall of Fame Laureates
The JA St. Louis Business Hall of Fame was introduced during an event held on May 20, 2006.
Junior Achievement's Anheuser-Busch St. Louis Business Hall of Fame was the first of its kind. The 2,500 square foot area is located within JA's Dennis & Judy Jones Free Enterprise Center. An important learning component for JA's two Capstone Programs located within the Free Enterprise Center, The Hall of Fame began by highlighting the lives of 40 St. Louis businessmen and women, who through their success in business and life have made this outstanding community what it is today. Since then, eight additional luminaries have been inducted. The displays focus on each laureate's life as a child and how it has contributed to their success as an adult, showing students that our greatest leaders were once children just like them.
