A Message from the Honorary Chairman

It is my honor to serve as chairman for this year’s Junior

Achievement, Business Hall of Fame Laureate Induction

Dinner. Thank you for joining me in recognizing the 2018

JA Laureates: William H. Broyles, II, Scott P. Sealy, Sr. and

Craig C. Spohn. Your presence here tonight honors our new

Laureates as well as our community’s outstanding Junior

Achievement program.

Junior Achievement provides a crucial service educating the

youth of our community in the areas of financial literacy, work

readiness and entrepreneurship. JA is located in 117 nations

throughout the world and is the largest organization dedicated

to giving young people the knowledge and skills they need to

plan for their futures and make smart academic and economic


Studies show that most parents do not feel qualified to talk to

their children about money and many are unable to help them

prepare for the world of work. In a world where our financial

lives are becoming more complicated and opportunities to

George D. Nelson, Jr.,

2012 JA Laureate

spend money far outweigh information on managing it; this organization is bridging a

critical educational gap. Our corporate and community volunteers deliver relevant, handson

experience—lessons that connect real life business with education. Students who are

the beneficiaries of the JA program are equipped with the tools they need to change their

dreams into reality and aspire to become successful citizens in the 21st century workforce.

With the support of JA Laureates, business leaders, and friends, tonight’s Laureate

Induction Dinner will provide 20% of the annual program budget—clearly a tremendous

return on investment. Thank you again for your generosity and your steadfast commitment

to today’s youth and our community’s future. You are changing lives!

A Message from the Chairman of the Board

Tonight’s event is Junior Achievement’s major fundraiser that

helps to provide area students lessons in financial literacy, workreadiness

and entrepreneurship. On behalf of JA and our Board

of Directors, I thank you for attending tonight’s fundraiser and

investing in Junior Achievement’s mission. First, I would like to

congratulate our 2018 JA Laureates, William H. Broyles, II, Scott

P. Sealy, Jr., and Craig C. Spohn and thank them for their support

to ensure the continued growth of Junior Achievement programs

in our community. I also want to thank the JA Board of Directors

and all of the Junior Achievement Laureates for their continued

investment in JA. As you know, an investment is different than a

gift—when you invest, you expect a return. I would like to share a

quick report concerning your return on investment regarding

JA’s performance last year.

Josh O. Clayton

During the 2017-18 academic year, JA engaged over 500 volunteers

who taught 9,177 students, totaling 48,920 student contact hours

in 394 classrooms, plus seven educational events hosted by

Junior Achievement. For the past 5 years, JA of North Louisiana

has remained in the top third of national performers, receiving

recognition from Junior Achievement USA as a 5 STAR Award

recipient. We can all be proud of our community for helping Junior

Achievement of North Louisiana be among the best JA programs

in the nation. Thank you to those who have continued to invest

in JA’s mission to empower young people to own their economic


I also want to commend our director, Nita Cook. Under her

leadership, the services provided by this organization have had

significant annual increases. Through innovative partnerships

with business leaders and organizations, JA mentors will continue

to inspire more young people to set goals for a successful

future! Thank you again and congratulations to our 2018 Junior

Achievement Business Hall of Fame Laureates!

William H. Broyles, II, was born on November 24, 1953,

in Leesville, Louisiana. He graduated from Leesville

High School in 1971 and enrolled in Centenary College.

He also attended Southern Methodist University in

Dallas as well as LSU in Baton Rouge. He received his

Bachelor of Science from Centenary College, where he

served as president of the Epsilon chapter of Kappa

Sigma fraternity. He later received his Masters from the

Owen Business School of Vanderbilt University.

Mr. Broyles began his career in the hospitality business,

serving as general manager of a hotel and golf course.

He then moved into real estate development and was

primarily involved in developing single family lots and

residences in the Shreveport market. His real estate

experience led him to purchasing and managing multifamily

complexes and strip shopping centers.

William H. Broyles

In 1997, he and a group of investors purchased Pelstate Oil Company, a chain of 30

convenience stores. This business was expanded into fuel distribution and bulk fueling

beginning with farms and construction sites in northwest Louisiana. Pelstate then became

involved in the oil field, primarily providing fuel for oil rigs, service yards, and pressure

pumping operations. Pelstate is active throughout the major oil and gas fields in the

south and southwest of the country.

Mr. Broyles later purchased a third party logistics and warehousing company, Monroe

Warehouse Company, with facilities in Louisiana and Arkansas. Monroe Warehouse

Company specializes in supply chain management and primarily serves the paper and

packaging industry with distribution throughout the nation. The finished products range

from beer and soft drink cartons to tissue, cereal and candy boxes. Mr. Broyles owned and

operated a tire retreading company serving over the road transportation companies with

national operations and has ownership interest in various other businesses.

Civically, Mr. Broyles has been involved with various non-profit boards. He was on the

board of the YMCA where he was part of a small group instrumental in building the BHP

Billiton YMCA located in east Shreveport. He has also served on the Board of Trustees

for Centenary College, the board of the Norwela Council of the Boy Scouts of America,

the Committee of 100, and several non-profits located in the mountains of western North

Carolina, where he spends most summers.

Mr. Broyles was also active in coaching both basketball and baseball for his children’s

team. He served as president of the Shreveport Futbol Club and several social clubs in

Shreveport. He is also active in multiple Bible study groups and attends First Presbyterian

Church with his wife, Nancy.

Mr. and Mrs. Broyles have been married for 38 years and have been blessed with four

children: Will Broyles, Jim Broyles, Becky Broyles and Ginny Lamb.

Thank you



for your commitment to





Craig Spohn was born at Randolph Air Force Base in

San Antonio, Texas, to a Master Sargent in the United

States Air Force and his wife. The family, including

Craig’s two older sisters, then moved to Bossier City in a

home close to Barksdale Air Force Base. Craig graduated

from Parkway High School in 1979 and went on to earn

a degree in finance from Louisiana State University in

Shreveport in 1987.

Due to a lack of jobs in the Shreveport-Bossier City

area, Craig continued in the oil field until he was offered

a position as an accounts payable clerk at Science

Applications International Corporation (SAIC). Moving

up the corporate ladder, Craig and his family moved

frequently to places such as Atlanta, Georgia; Fairfax, Craig Spohn

Virginia; and Knoxville, Tennessee. The family stayed

the longest, six years, in Saudi Arabia, where Craig

served as Vice President of Middle East Operations and

General Manager of the SAIC joint venture with a prince of the Saudi royal family. After

deciding it was time to move back to the United States, Craig, his wife Stacy, and their

children returned home to Shreveport-Bossier City.

With his background in technology, Craig helped set up a local company’s technology

division. He also volunteered to serve on community boards. One board focused on a

community response to the United States Air Force’s cyber needs. This culminated in

the creation of what is now the Cyber Innovation Center, which Craig was asked to lead.

As Executive Director of the Cyber Innovation Center for the last eleven years, Craig has

helped facilitate economic growth both in the local region and across the country, creating

thousands of jobs for the region, and provided a solution to educational and workforce

needs in the budding cyber industry through the creation of the National Integrated Cyber

Education Research Center (NICERC) and other cyber education and training programs.

Craig, through the Cyber Innovation Center, continues to expand the knowledge-based

economy in Northwest Louisiana through partnerships with academic, government, and

industry partners. These unique partnerships seek to develop workforce needs beyond the

cyber industry, supporting Air Force Global Strike Command’s nuclear modernization and

strategic deterrence revitalization.

In 2017, Governor John Bel Edwards appointed Craig as Chairman of the Louisiana Cyber

Commission to coordinate state-wide cyber initiatives. Previously, Craig was appointed

by Governor Bobby Jindal to lead the state-wide higher education transition team. One

of Craig’s most prized accomplishments is the honorary doctorate bestowed upon him by

President Les Guice of Louisiana Tech University.

Craig hopes that these efforts will culminate in a legacy for Louisiana, particularly the

Northwest region, and will allow students and residents to remain in the region and

develop economic diversity for generations.

leave with a clearer understanding of resume building

and an increased understanding of the importance of

staying in school.
