As our region encounters transformational times, Junior Achievement is evolving and innovating to stay on top of what matters most: inspiration and hope for tomorrow. The Re-Imagined 2021 Central Illinois Business Hall of Fame allows students, parents, school systems, and the business community to convene for an all-inclusive, high-impact virtual experience, connecting students and communities of the Central Illinois directly with the best in business.

On Tuesday, March 9, 2021 JA of Central Illinois will be inducting this year's Laureates into the Central Illinois Business Hall of Fame during a Virtual event. Details will be announced.

· Sister Judith Ann Duvall, Major Superior, OSF HealthCare                              

· Steve Jackson, Owner, Prairie Home Alliance

· Doug Oberhelman, Retired CEO & Executive Chairman, Caterpillar Inc. 

JA has a long, rich history of honoring community business leaders at the national and local level. Junior Achievement's U.S. Business Hall of Fame is located in the Enterprise permanent exhibit at the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago, IL. JA of Central Illinois founder, Louis B. Neumiller, former Chairman/CEO of Caterpillar, Inc., is an esteemed member of the Junior Achievement US Business Hall of Fame. The Central Illinois Business Hall of Fame exhibit is located at the Peoria Riverfront Museum in the Peoria History Center.

At JA, we give young people the knowledge and skills to own their economic success, plan for their future and make smart academic and economic choices. Each year, more than 600 local volunteers help students proactively manage their finances, become entrepreneurs and develop skills that are recognized as valuable in a global workforce. Specifically, the JA pillars of success focus on workforce readiness skills, financial literacy, and entrepreneurship programming to nearly 18,000 students in Central Illinois. Contributions for Hall of Fame support local programs.

Laureate induction into the Central Illinois Business Hall of Fame is a lifetime achievement award for individuals who have consistently demonstrated these qualities throughout their professional lives: Business Excellence, Visionary, Innovative Leadership, Entrepreneurial Spirit, Longstanding, Contemporary Accomplishments, Community, Involvement and High Moral and Ethical Principles. Through these accomplishments, Laureates serve as role models to the next generation of business leaders, many of who are currently Junior Achievement students.
