Time: 5:00 PM ET
Since 1987, Junior Achievement of Central Ohio (JA), a Columbus-based nonprofit, has celebrated community and business leaders in our region by inducting them into the Central Ohio Business Hall of Fame.

Hall of Fame laureates embody business excellence, courageous thinking and action, vision and innovation, inspirational leadership, and community support.

We are excited to announce the 2022 Hall of Fame Laureates: Michael B. Coleman, Partner-in-Charge Government Law, Ice Miller and Jeffrey W. Edwards, President, CEO and Chairman, Installed Building Products and Edwards Companies.

JA honors Hall of Fame Laureates for their contributions to our region’s economic development and their commitment to business excellence. Laureates are role models for their peers, and ultimately for Central Ohio’s K-12 students that JA serves.

All sponsorships support the year-round work and mission of Junior Achievement of Central Ohio. Additionally, a portion of all dollars raised through the Central Ohio Business Hall of Fame help fund two scholarships given annually to two area high school students to be used towards future education or career certificates. The scholarships are given in honor of our Laureates each year.
