West Virginia University College of Business and Economics is now accepting nominations for this year's class of West Virginia Business Hall of Fame.
"The West Virginia Business Hall of Fame is a great way to recognize individuals who have demonstrated outstanding leadership and commitment to community," said Dr. Jose "Zito" Sartarelli, Milan Puskar deanat the business school.
"The Hall of Fame celebrates individuals who have made significant contributions in many ways to our state, and they remind us of the tremendous opportunity for economic success in West Virginia," Sartarelli said.
Nominees are individuals who have illustrated extraordinary leadership, demonstrated a commitment to their community, and have a strong tie to West Virginia tie. A college degree is not a requirement for the honor.
The West Virginia Business Hall of Fame was created in 2001, and has since inducted 54 individuals. Last year's inductees included CONSOL Energy chairman J. Brett Harvey, West Virginia United Health System president J. Thomas Jones, and Julie Smith, co-founder of the Continuous Learning Group, Inc.
