A letter from Greg Moran, chairman of Junior Achievement of Central Ohio:
On behalf of our community partners, Junior Achievement of Central Ohio is proud to host the 2011 Central Ohio Business Hall of Fame ceremony. The Hall of Fame has recognized more than 80 distinguished business leaders during the past 24 years.
This year’s inductees — Sue Doody, George McCloy and Robert White Sr. — are deserving additions to the Central Ohio Business Hall of Fame. Excellence, leadership and an entrepreneurial spirit will be well represented by the class of 2011.
The 2011 Hall of Fame inductees act as role models for students in our community. Junior Achievement celebrates their careers as we prepare young people to succeed in the global economy. Junior Achievement volunteers and staff teach financial literacy, work readiness skills and an entrepreneurial mindset to students throughout the central Ohio region.
I am excited about what the entrepreneurs of the past and present have done for Central Ohio. Working closely with business and economic development leadership, we look forward with anticipation to the contribution that Junior Achievement alumni will make in our community during the coming decades!
Today, we have an opportunity to celebrate these Hall of Fame inductees, standing on the foundation they’ve laid as we help young people take control of their future and fully live to their potential in our region. We are proud to be partners with our school systems, employers and community leadership in educating our future work force. We invite you to join us at www.jacols.org or search Junior Achievement of Central Ohio on Facebook.
Greg Moran is chairman of the board for Junior Achievement of Central Ohio and senior vice president and chief information officer, Infrastructure and Operations, for Nationwide Mutual Insurance Co.
