To be considered as a Business Hall of Fame Laureate, an individual’s record of business achievement must demonstrate business excellence, courageous thinking and actions, vision and innovation, inspiring leadership, and community mindedness. Laureate nominations will open again next year in August 2018.

Since 1986, Junior Achievement of the Space Coast has inducted such notable individuals as Joseph H. Wickham, Jesse J. Parrish, Jr., W. Lansing Gleason, B.W. “Bernie” Simpkins, Dr. Maxwell C. King, Joseph Duda and John Hopkins.  Notable Laureates from the Space Coast, Wayne Huizenga of Blockbuster Entertainment Group and Al Neuharth of USA TODAY/FLORIDA TODAY, went on to be inducted into the US Business Hall of Fame.

The JASC Business Hall of Fame was established in 1986 to recognize individuals who have made outstanding contributions to free enterprise and society. Individuals are nominated by the Brevard County community members and then selected by a committee of Business Hall of Fame Laureates. Each nominee’s record of business achievement must demonstrate business excellence, courageous thinking and actions, vision and innovation, inspiring leadership, social responsibility and serving as a role model to those who follow.
