On September 24, Ron Offutt, Founder and Chairman Emeritus, was among six leaders inducted into the 2015 Junior Achievement Upper Midwest Business Hall of Fame. Inductees were selected for their excellence in business and philanthropy, and for their significant contributions to their communities. Their stories aim to inspire local students to strive for success and encourage their entrepreneurial spirit.
Junior Achievement programs are taught in nearly 700 schools throughout the Midwest, exposing nearly 160,000 students in grades K-12 to its programming focused on relevant, fundamental learning opportunities.
As part of his induction, a video was produced by the JAUM team and highlights the business success and entrepreneurial spirit of Mr. Offutt. You can view the video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YiV9fEIzwSs&feature=youtu.be
