About the Kentuckiana Business Hall of Fame

Entrepreneurs dream of success. As they attain that success, they want to ensure a great future for their communities.

Today Junior Achievement has proudly inducted 132 Laureates into the Kentuckiana Business Hall of Fame, since 1982.

The Laureates we honor each year have put substance into the American dream. Through their leadership, vision and innovation, they have accomplished much for Kentuckiana’s economic development and social welfare. Their passion for excellence and steadfast commitment to this community is an inspiration to all of us and a lesson in leadership for Kentuckiana’s future leaders, innovators, and entrepreneurs.

A call for nominations from the general public is made several months in advance of the event. A nomination committee composed of community members that aren’t regional board members make the selections.
