Join us for the 28th Annual Alaska Business Hall of Fame, an event that celebrates the past, present, and future of business in Alaska. In 1987, Junior Achievement began the Alaska Business Hall of Fame to honor outstanding individual leaders of Alaskan business. Since then, the Hall of Fame has become one of the state’s most prestigious events, inducting new Laureates on an annual basis. These individuals are honored for their direct impact toward furthering the success of Alaskan business, support for Junior Achievement’s mission and programs, and demonstrated commitment to the Alaskan economy.
This important event is a fundraiser for Junior Achievement, an organization dedicated to providing economic and entrepreneurial education in the great state of Alaska. Since 1973, Junior Achievement has served K-12 students statewide from Barrow to Ketchikan. Junior Achievement serves 8,500 students annually in forty-three Alaskan communities. As demand for the program continues to grow, Junior Achievement partners the business community with educators to prepare young people for a global economy. Through the continued support of corporations and businesses in Alaska, we can continue to reach more students in Alaska.
It is our privilege to invite you to attend the 2014 Alaska Business Hall of Fame, presented by Alaska Business Monthly. This year we are honored to induct the Doyle Family, Weaver Brothers; the Helmericks Family, Colville Inc.; Wally J. Hickel Jr., Hickel Investment Company/Hotel Captain Cook; Martin Pihl, Alaska Timber Exchange; and Chris von Imhof, Alyeska Resort—congratulations to you all!
The Alaska Business Hall of Fame is annually attended by nearly six hundred guests, including many prior Laureates, leaders from the business community, and supporters of Junior Achievement. We are again pleased to have General Mark Hamilton emcee the event along with actual Junior Achievement students.
