Awards Dinner and Ceremony
The Central Indiana Business Hall of Fame was established in 1989 by the Junior Achievement Board of Directors to honor outstanding men and women who have made significant contributions to the corporate and civic community. These individuals are pioneers in their industries, present excellent business role models to the youth of our community and have changed the face of the business community in central Indiana and beyond.
The 26th annual black tie event will be held on February 20th, 2014 at the Indiana Roof Ballroom. The evening will begin at 6:00 pm with a reception, followed by the dinner and awards ceremony at 7:00 pm. Junior Achievement students will participate in the evening’s events, which will include introductions of the Laureates and video presentations highlighting their many accomplishments. Laureates or family members will provide brief acceptance remarks.
Along with the compelling stories of each Laureate’s life, JA kids make the evening a uniquely memorable experience. It is anticipated that more than 500 business leaders and their guests will be in attendance at the traditionally sold-out event.
