Junior Achievement Inducts New Members Into Business Hall Of Fame

By Brett Baldeck | 

Business leaders gathered to reflect on another year of support for South Central Kentucky's future leaders.

The 2013 Junior Achievement Business Hall Of Fame Ceremony was held Thursday morning at the Sloan Convention Center in Bowling Green.

John Holland of Fruit of the Loom and the late Charles M. Moore, Jr. were inducted into this year's class.

Junior Achievement takes this time every year to thank business leaders for volunteering. They say without them a vital asset would be gone from our community.

"I really think that there would be something missing in what students learn. They would miss out on learning the soft skills of interviewing and resume writing and the basics of financial management. Things that sometimes aren't taught at home," says President Heather Rogers.

Since 1992 the Junior Achievement Business Hall Of Fame has honored 24 area leaders for their excellence in their communities.
