JA Hall of Fame | Junior Achievement of Greater St. Louis

JA of Greater St. Louis Business Hall of Fame

The JA Business Hall of Fame was established to recognize icons of commerce and industry. The criteria for laureate selection include a demonstration of business excellence, courageous thinking and acting, inspired leadership and community mindedness. These icons of business are exemplary role models for  future generations. At JA's 2021 event, we inducted our laureates during an exciting recognition program. This event is dedicated to celebrating inspirational leaders and supporting the important mission of JA - to create leaders of tomorrow.
