Kansas Business Hall of Fame Nominations


The Kansas Business Hall of Fame has served to recognize the phenomenal heritage of Kansas Business Leadership since 1987. Housed at the Emporia State University School of Business, it features two awards, the Historical Heritage Award and the Contemporary Honors Award. Dr. Jeffrey Muldoon, Executive Director of the Kansas Business Hall of Fame, describes the purpose of the organization and legacy of past recipients, saying, “History provides lessons, insights, and even inspiration to succeeding generations. The members of the Kansas Business Hall of Fame provide outstanding examples of excellent, ethical and dynamic leadership and inspire the current and future generations of Kansans to achieve excellence themselves.”


The Board of Directors encourages students, chambers of commerce, businesses and other organizations to nominate outstanding business individuals.


The Historical Heritage Award is given to a person who has made contributions to Kansas Business that establish that person as meriting preservation as a historical figure. The individual must have been deceased for no less than five years.


The Contemporary Honors Award is given to a contemporary, living business leader of Kansas. The individual may show outstanding leadership in Kansas business, or may be a native Kansan who has achieved national recognition. 


The Board is accepting nominations for 2017 recipients through October.
