In 1992, the Business Hall of Fame was created to honor the lives and accomplishments of extraordinary South Central Kentuckians. Hall of Fame laureates are nominated by members of the community and then selected by an independent committee.
Over the years, Junior Achievement has honored individuals who epitomize five key standards of excellence:
• Entrepreneurial spirit and achievement
• Exceptional role model for youth
• Economic impact on area
• Business leadership
• Commitment to the goals of Junior Achievement
The Business Hall of Fame, presented by Truist, is displayed at the Knicely Conference Center in Bowling Green, KY.
