“We are excited to induct the class of 2022 into the Dallas Business Hall of Fame. Each Laureate has dedicated so much to the Dallas Community and is a fabulous leader.  We are very excited to be hosting a live event this year and hear from JA students who will relay how Junior Achievement has impacted their lives,” said Jan Murfield, President of Junior Achievement Dallas. 

The event will be co-emceed by Spectrum News’ Dr. Nicole Cross as well as by NBC’s Eric Alvarez. Cross, a proud anchor, reporter and host of In Focus Texas, is inspired by her deep love for people and their unique experiences.

Morgan Chase & Co; Colleen Barrett, President Emerita of Southwest Airlines; Lucy Billingsley, CEO of the Billingsley Company; Valerie Freeman, CEO and founder of Dallas-based Imprimis Group, Inc.; Karen Katz, Board Member, Advisor, and Former CEO The Neiman Marcus Group; Liz Minyard Lokey, former co-CEO of Minyard Food Stores and the first woman chair of the Dallas Regional Chamber; Nancy Nasher, President & Co-Owner at NorthPark Management Company; Melissa Reiff, President of The Container Store Group; and Trisha Wilson, Chairman of Trisha Wilson Global.
