Making up the Laureates-to-be quartet are Carcon Industries President/CEO Arcilia Acosta, Hunt Sports Group Chair Clark Hunt, Texas 2036 Founder Tom Luce and The Beck Group CEO Fred Perpall.
According to Junior Achievement Dallas President/CEO Jan Murfield, “Junior Achievement Dallas is excited to induct this year’s class of Laureates into the Dallas Business Hall of Fame. We are honoring four outstanding individuals! Each Laureate has contributed so much to the Dallas community, and they are fabulous business and philanthropic leaders. After last year’s first, virtual Dallas Hall of Fame event, we are thrilled to be back in-person. JA students from local schools will also be present and tell their stories on how Junior Achievement has impacted their lives.”
Adding to the big-name fundraising are the event co-chairs/Laureates Liz Minyard Lokey (2000), Colleen Barrett (2007), Lucy Billingsley (2008), Elaine Agather (2010), Trisha Wilson (2012), Karen Katz (2013), Nancy Nasher (2018), Melissa Reiff (2020) and Valerie Freeman (2021).
In addition to the presentation of the newest Laureates, the evening will include a cocktail reception, seated dinner and silent and live auctions.
Sponsorships starting at $150,000 are available here.
Funds raised from the annual event “help Junior Achievement continue to provide life-changing programs for students throughout Dallas. Junior Achievement’s vision for the future is to provide business role models, basic business skills and financial literacy to 10% of the most at-risk students — changing the lives of students who need JA’s transformational curriculum in order to find their pathway to success.”
