On Thursday, March 7, 2024, three of Greater Louisville’s outstanding business and civic leaders were inducted into the Kentuckiana Business Hall of Fame to benefit Junior Achievement of Kentuckiana at the Louisville Marriott Downtown.

The event, hosted by Junior Achievement of Kentuckiana along with presenting sponsors WDRB Media and Delta Dental of Kentucky, recognizes individuals for their significant contributions to the Kentuckiana business and civic communities. Those honored demonstrate business excellence; courageous thinking and actions; vision and innovation; inspiring leadership; and community involvement. Also, they are role models for our future generations.

A selection committee independent of the Junior Achievement Board of Directors, staff and WDRB Media chooses the Laureates. The Kentuckiana Business Hall of Fame was founded in 1982.

These distinguished business leaders will join 132 previously honored Kentuckiana Business Hall of Fame recipients: Tawana Bain, CEO ACRG and Founder and Advisor to TBAIN & Co., Maggie Payette Harlow, CEO Signarama Downtown Louisville, and Jimmy Kirchdorfer, CEO ISCO Industries, Inc. Their commitment to our region and their respective philanthropic efforts aimed at enhancing the future are truly commendable.

Junior Achievement of Kentuckiana proudly announced at the Kentuckiana Business Hall of Fame that it is commemorating 75 years of service to our community this year, having impacted over 1.5 million students since its inception.
