A Message from the Honorary Chairman

I am delighted to serve as honorary chairman for this year’s

JA Business Hall of Fame, Laureate Induction Dinner.

Junior Achievement has changed quite a bit since it was first

launched in Shreveport in 1964 as an after school program

for high school youth. Today, our volunteer-led programs are

taught during school in all grades from kindergarten through

high school. It continues to educate our youth about the roles

that personal finance and business play in our economy. Junior

Achievement’s national office has designed a comprehensive

program that progressively exposes students to vital lessons

about preparing for the workplace, money management, and

starting a business. It is a proven program which inspires

young people to nurture their dreams for the future while

building those personal traits needed to succeed: confidence,

self-reliance, and responsibility. Plus it is fun! Since all of our

teachers are volunteers, program costs are kept to a minimum.

Junior Achievement of North Louisiana will serve 9,000+

students this year. Thank you for your presence here today.

Please help JA thrive by pledging your support, continuing to

volunteer and recruiting others to participate!

A Message from the Chairman of the Board

“Give Them the Power

to Pursue Their Dreams”

This slogan is found on Junior Achievement’s website, and I

believe it fully captures the spirit and purpose of the organization.

Giving of ourselves professionally and of our resources financially

to support the hopes and dreams of our local young people is an

amazing opportunity.

On behalf of JA, I’d like to welcome you to tonight’s fundraising

event and to personally thank you for your participation and

support. I’d also like to take time to honor our 2017 Junior

Achievement Business Hall of Fame Laureates. Congratulations

are in order for Wayne Brown, Sarah Collier, and Richard Wright!

Your leadership is inspirational and your continued supported of

JA is appreciated.

Lyle H. Jeansonne

We have a collective opportunity, and in my opinion responsibility,

to positively affect the lives of our young people by investing

our time and our resources into them. Each of us has unique

life experiences and perspectives that can be used to help them

achieve their dreams and realize their purpose.

We are on track to influence the lives of approximately 9,500

regional students this year alone through various programs

that focus on finance, work readiness and entrepreneurship.

Opportunity doesn’t always present itself equally; however,

through JA’s programs entrepreneurial attitudes are fostered and

experiential learning takes place, which increase the odds of our

young people becoming successful men and women.

Thank you again to all who currently partner with and support JA.

I encourage each of you to consider investing in JA as we work

towards helping our young people realize their dreams.

CONGRATULATIONS

In 1946, when Wayne was born in Arkansas, his father James

knew he wanted to give his sons opportunities he didn’t

have. After working in Shreveport as a carpenter, James

started his own homebuilding company, where Wayne

worked summers and after school doing manual labor to

help the family business and save money for college.

The first in his family to graduate from college, Wayne

earned his B.S. in Civil Engineering from LSU. He says his

greatest accomplishment in college was marrying his high

school sweetheart, Ellen Daniel Brown, with whom he will

be celebrating a 50th anniversary in 2018. While in school

he worked with an engineering firm designing bridges on

I-10 in New Orleans. He then earned his M.S. from Purdue

University and worked for a national contractor as project

engineer for 13-story apartment towers in San Francisco.

B. Wayne Brown

Chairman of the Board

Brown Builders, LLC

In 1971, Wayne and Ellen returned to Shreveport-Bossier

City to start their family and, at age 24, joined his father

and brother Doug founding Brown Builders. Under his

leadership as President for 42 years and Board Chairman since 2013, Brown Builders has

given back much to the community and continues to do so with his daughter Kristen currently

President.

Over the past 46 years, Brown Builders has been responsible for over $1 Billion of construction

in Shreveport-Bossier, Louisiana, and other southern states. Landmarks such as Benteler Steel,

Parkway High School, Noel Library, Willis-Knighton Bossier, Superior’s Steakhouse, and the

STEM building on the BPCC campus are just a few of the contributions Brown Builders has

made for citizens to work, play, study, worship and do business. Additionally, with his father and

brother, Wayne has developed over 2500 home lots. He has also developed and constructed over

2000 multi-family apartment units.

Wayne invests in the community not only by building buildings, but also by building the

community itself. He has a passion for economic development and government and is active

in organizations that enhance both. He currently serves on the Executive Committee of the

Louisiana State Committee of 100, and was past chairman of the Greater Bossier Economic

Development Foundation. Throughout his career, it has been important to Wayne to give back

to his profession by serving on boards and in leadership positions, including the Louisiana

Engineering Society and Associated General Contractors (past president).

Although he’s known as a hard worker who doesn’t seek the limelight, Wayne’s efforts have not

gone unrecognized. He and Brown Builders have been honored with many awards, including

Butler Builder’s 2015 North American Builder of the Year.

Wayne also works to build his community with time and resources to non-profits close to his

heart, including Volunteers of America, the Glen, and Providence House. At First Baptist

Church, he has held many offices including Deacon Chairman and Sunday School teacher.

No matter how busy he is with work and community service, Wayne has always been family

first with four daughters, Kristen, Catherine, Mary Ellen and Susanna, and sons-in-law David,

Graham and Stephen. Wayne and Ellen are also blessed with thirteen amazing grandchildren.

Wayne and Ellen enjoy travel with Israel being one of their most memorable trips. Wayne loves

to hunt and fish and host events large and small at Cypress Lake. But Wayne loves purple and

gold, and LSU football games are by far the family’s favorite outing!

Shreveport in 1984 after a winding journey through

Kansas, Missouri, and Oklahoma. Sarah was born

and raised in the small town of Winfield, Kansas.

Her favorite of the five schools is University

of Kansas. She still follows KU Basketball and

chants Rock Chalk Jayhawk when they win! Sarah

to area businesses. Sarah and Mike owned, as minority partners, a cell tower repair

service, a solar energy company, a stand by generator company, and an insulated

make-up bag company among others. She is also a former minority owner of

Palmetto Country Club.

In 1985, Sarah became involved in the Shreveport/Bossier community and served

as President for two years with Holiday in Dixie Diplomats. In 1989, she became

a member of Rotary Club of Shreveport and was its President in 2008-2009. Later

she served as President of the Rotary Club of Shreveport Foundation. Sarah is a

past member of Altrusa and served as its president in 1987. Sarah understands the

value of mentoring young people and has given her time and support to Junior

Achievement of North Louisiana. Sarah was a major investor for the 2015 JA

Inspires: Student & Mentor Lunch, the 2017 JA SPARK: Entrepreneur + Innovation

Challenge, as well as the JA Business Hall of Fame Relocation Initiative which

Richard H. Wright

Congratulations PaPa

on your lifetime achievement.

We love, honor and respect you!

Your family


Richard H. Wright was born in Cotton Valley, Louisiana,

and has been a life-long resident of North Louisiana.

Throughout his career, Richard has sought to lead with

integrity and has become a recognized business owner,

entrepreneur, and civic leader.

After graduating from Louisiana Tech in 1973, Richard’s

first “real” job was when Mr. M. Allen Dickson took a

chance and hired him as a sales representative for Morris

& Dickson. At Morris & Dickson, Richard learned the

value of forming personal relationships.

After several successful years at Morris & Dickson,

Richard’s career transitioned to Direct Sales where he

became a top sales leader in Amway. In addition to Richard H. Wright

expanding his sales expertise at Amway, he also honed

his leadership and public speaking skills. After his time

at Amway, Richard partnered with a college friend to form a successful software services

business based in Shreveport. During this time, his love of politics grew, and he left to

serve as a senior staffer for Congressman Jim McCrery from the 4th district of Louisiana.

The most interesting and fulfilling chapter of his career began when Richard was asked

to become the President and CEO of AdvoCare International. During his eight years at

the helm, Richard grew the company from 30,000 distributors to well over 500,000 and

increased corporate revenue by more than 10 times, to almost $1B in revenue.

Richard has served non-profit organizations, including on the National Board of the

Direct Selling Association; on the Board and as Fundraising Chair of the United Way of

Northwest Louisiana; and on the Board and Executive Committee of the Independence

Bowl. Richard was also named to the William J. O’Neil Center for Global Markets

and Freedom Advisory Board at Southern Methodist University. Richard founded and

chaired the Red River Revel Cork Festival. He is currently serving as both Executive Vice

President and Fundraising Chair for the Norwela Council of the Boy Scouts of America.

Richard has received numerous corporate and civic honors. Richard was named The

Ernst and Young Entrepreneur of the year in Texas; has received the NFL Foundation

Distinguished American award; was recognized as the Navy Seal Legacy Foundation

Person of the Year; and was named as the March of Dimes Citizen of the Year.

Richard was a founding member of Grace Community UMC and served as Finance Chair

for over 10 years. He is now a member of First Methodist in Shreveport and serves on the

Finance Committee and recently served as Chairman of the Board of the Seaside Chapel

in Florida.

Richard will tell you that one of his greatest accomplishments was meeting his future wife,

Sherry, at the age of twelve. The couple has been sweethearts and partners for 46 years.

They are the parents of two daughters, Elizabeth Wendall “Wendy” Watkins and Ashley

Ann Farr, and are the proud grandparents of six grandchildren.

Richard is an Eagle Scout, was selected for the Order of the Arrow, and earned the God

and Country award.

Dear Sarah,

Please accept my personal congratulations on being named a 2017 JA Laureate

when this involvement is recognized in such a visible and deserving way.

that value. Thank you for being a role model for youth and our colleagues alike.

Congratulations again on this notable achievement.

practical information about businesses and the many jobs

those businesses offer in a community. Students explore

production methods through a simulation game, and

learn about taxes, decision making, and how money flows

in an economy.

JA Our City ®

JA Our City introduces students to the characteristics

of cities and how cities are shaped by zoning. Students

learn the importance of money to a city; how financial

institutions help businesses and city residents; and how

the media is an integral part of a city’s life; and the role of

an entrepreneur.

JA Our Region ®

JA Our Region introduces students to entrepreneurship

and how entrepreneurs use resources to produce goods

and services in a region. Students operate a hypothetical

hot dog stand to understand the fundamental tasks of a

business owner and basic operations of the business.

JA Our Nation ®

JA Our Nation provides practical information about the

need for employees who can meet the demands of the 21st

century job market. Students will understand the skills,

especially in science, technology, engineering, and math,

necessary to achieve future success.

“If you are planning for a

year, sow rice; if you are

planning for a decade,

plant trees; if you are

planning for a lifetime,

educate people.”

MIDDLE SCHOOL

PROGRAMS

JA Global Marketplace ®

JA Global Marketplace takes students on a spin around

the world. Students learn the products they use every

day, like their backpacks and sneakers, might use raw

material from one country, be assembled in another,

and sold from Peking to Chicago. The program helps

students understand how goods flow through various

economies and the effect globalization has on their lives.

JA It’s My Future ®

JA It’s My Future provides practical information about

preparing for the working world. Students learn about

career clusters, high-growth jobs, career planning, and

creating a personal brand. And, through a scavenger

hunt, they are introduced to the basic aspects of job

hunting.

JA Economics for Success ®

JA Economics for Success gives the students the

information needed to build strong personal finances,

a cornerstone to a happy, secure life. Students learn

the importance of exploring career options based on

their skills, interests, and values. They also learn about

personal budgeting; wisely saving and investing; and

cautiously using credit.

JA Job Shadow

JA Job Shadow prepares students to be entrepreneurial

thinkers in their approach to work. In-class sessions

prepare students for a visit to a college campus.

Students learn how to research academic and career

opportunities and develop the skills needed to land and

keep their dream job.

“Children are the world’s

most valuable resource

and its best hope for the

future.”

John F. Kennedy


HIGH SCHOOL PROGRAMS

JA It’s My Business ®

JA It’s My Business! Blended Model provides middle

school students an opportunity to experience the

initial steps necessary to start a business. New

program content provides an authentic entrepreneurial

experience for students, with each session building up

to a product-pitch competition.

JA Personal Finance ®

JA Personal Finance explores the fundamental

elements of personal finances: earnings, savings and

investments, budgeting, credit, risk management, and

giving. Students apply these elements to a personal

financial plan that allows them to set specific goals for

their lifelong financial needs and desired quality of life.

JA Career Success ®

JA Career Success equips students with the knowledge

required to get and keep a job in high-growth

industries. Students will explore the crucial workplace

skills employers seek but often find lacking in young

employees. Students also learn about valuable tools to

find that perfect job, including resumes, cover letters,

and interviewing techniques.

JA Inspires ®

This work-readiness initiative utilizes the JA Job

Shadow in-class curriculum to prepare students for a

visit to a professional workplace environment. Students

will navigate a series of challenges administered by

their hosts. After the site visit, students gather with

community citizens and business leaders for the

JA Inspires: Student & Mentor Lunch. Following

an exercise in introductions and shaking hands as

well as business etiquette, roundtable discussions

teach students to use critical thinking, creativity,

communication, and collaboration skills to complete

worksheets with their mentors. They explore needs and

wants, ethics in business, and interview skills. Students

leave with a clearer understanding of resume building

and an increased understanding of the importance of

staying in school.

“Entrepreneurship is

the way we take

control of our lives in a

tough economy.”
