Business Hall of Fame Laureates are honored not only for their success in business but for their dedication and commitment to the local community and the state of Kansas. Junior Achievement of Kansas annually honors businessmen and women to inspire young people to follow in the laureates' footsteps. A committee selected this year's laureates based on criteria including their business excellence, entrepreneurial spirit, community impact, leadership style, local influence, and enduring legacy.

We look forward to celebrating these individuals throughout the fall and at the tribute dinner this spring. Sponsorships and tickets are available. Please email Ashley Charest or call 785.235.3700 for more information.
