Tuesday was a very special night for the hundreds of young, career-oriented students in Savannah as they honored the men and women who are mentoring their future success.

The 17th annual Savannah Business Hall of Fame was held at the Trade and Convention Center, put on in part by Junior Achievement.

More than 500 of the Coastal Empire's business movers and shakers were here to honor, not only the students of Junior Achievement but two Savannah business leaders who exemplify success and the commitment to pay if forward.

"To serve as role models to the students and to show them what it is to be successful.  Not only do you need to have a career success, but also that you need to be able to give back to the community. And Ellen Bolch and Dr. Jim Andrews are two just stunning examples of that,” said Johnathon Barrett, with the Junior Achievement of Georgia

WTOC's own Dawn Baker was the emcee for Tuesday's gala.

By the way, Junior Achievement touches the lives of more than 15,000 local students with programs on financial responsibility and career development.
