Tim Barton to be Honored as Greater Kansas City Business Hall of Fame Laureate

We’ve been talking a lot about Freightquote’s founder in Freightquote news recently, and we’re not done yet. We’re proud to tell you Tim Barton is a 2014 Greater Kansas City Business Hall of Fame Laureate.

The Greater Kansas City Business Hall of Fame acknowledges inspirational business leaders who have demonstrated the importance of sound fiscal practices and entrepreneurialism that are also taught by Junior Achievement.  JA is the world’s largest organization dedicated to educating students about workforce readiness, entrepreneurship and financial literacy through hands-on programs. The Junior Achievement of Middle America program will reach more than 20,000 students in Kansas City this year.  The laureates encourage Junior Achievement participants to pursue careers in business and contribute to their community.

The awards ceremony will be held Thursday, November 13 at the Kansas City Marriott Downtown.  Proceeds from the event benefit Junior Achievement’s efforts in the empowerment of young people. You can purchase your tickets by visiting http://jamidamerica.org/hall_of_fame.
