SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - The 16th annual Savannah Business Hall of Fame event was held Tuesday night.
Junior Achievement and Colonial Group, Inc. recognized this year's honorees: Mr. Curtis Lewis, III, and Dr. Michael and Mrs. Linda Zoller.
All three are known for their business accomplishments and contributions to the community. Dr. Zoller, one of Savannah's premiere physicians, Linda Zoller, one of the fouonders of the Ronald McDonald House and Curtis Lewis II, president of Lewis Enterprises and longtime lawyer.
They all have a pretty big message for our community's future.
"The young people today, the lesson to take away for them is to learn as much as you can about the world," said J.C. Lewis III.
"Our children are our future and the more involved they can get the better their lives will be," said Linda Zoller.
"So many of these young people need mentors to push them in the right direction so that they can turn out to be successful, productive citizens," said Dr. Zoller.
WTOC's Dawn Baker was the emcee for Tuesday's event.
About 500 guests were expected to attend.
