Junior Achievement of West Virginia recently honored Diana Sole, president of MotionMasters, with a Laureate award.
Junior Achievement’s Business Hall of Fame was established to celebrate the accomplishments of individuals who have had a lasting impact on the free enterprise system and improved our way of life in West Virginia. In honoring our Laureates, Young said, “We hope to inspire others, especially young people, to pursue excellence as well as their dreams for a better tomorrow.” Diana is one of 16 recipients since the Business Hall of Fame was founded in 1999.
Junior Achievement, a private nonprofit organization, accomplishes its purpose by providing economic education programs to students in kindergarten through 12th grades.
As the largest and fastest growing business and economic education organization in the world, Junior Achievement reached more than seven million elementary, middle and high school students during 2006. Locally, Junior Achievement is entering the 36th year of educating young West Virginians with business and economic programs. It currently reaches more than 5,000 West Virginia students in 225 classrooms with the help of 200 teachers and more than 150 volunteer consultants.
