Each year, Junior Achievement of Central Florida hosts the prestigious Mid-Florida Business Hall of Fame dinner to honor local prominent business persons who have made extraordinary contributions of leadership to our community. The highlight of the event is seeing our Junior Achievement students serve as the hosts for the evening and present the newly inducted members of the Hall of Fame and the Spirit of Achievement.
