This morning, Brookshire Grocery Company was inducted into the Junior Achievement Business Hall of Fame.
"We could not be more pleased or excited about this year's nominee for the 2013 Junior Achievement Business Hall of Fame award," said JA board member and Regions bank president, Chad Cargile. "This honoree is well known for their outstanding contributions to the Tyler community and for being a role model for all aspiring business leaders and entrepreneurs. Their actions and support embody the spirit of what JA represents as an organization, which is to inspire and prepare young people for our global economy."
The core purpose of Junior Achievement is to inspire and prepare young people to succeed in a global economy.

Junior Achievement will teach these principals to over 3,500 Tyler area K-12th grade students in 172 classrooms this year through age-appropriate and interactive programs and activities. JA trains nearly 3,500 students.
