On Wednesday, some leaders in the community received a little recognition for their tireless work courtesy of the Junior Achievement Savannah Business Hall of Fame, which is now in it's 13th year. Don Kole is honored to be part of such a wonderful organization.

"And so I thank Junior Achievement for this reflection of my life. And as I go forth, I shall strive to continue to show my gratitude by continuing to make my hometown, my community a better place," said Kole.

Robert Demere was also in this year's class.

"I'm really not one to receive accolades too well. It is somewhat embarrassing for me to be honest. Junior Achievement is such a fine organization that I let them twist my arm a little bit and I am glad that they did," said Demere.

WTOC's Mike Manhatton served as the emcee for the event.
