Several local people are honored for helping young students succeed.
Junior Achievement of North Louisiana named their hall of fame laureates for 2014.
They include Grady Golden of Builders Supply Company, Bobby Nichols of Eagle Distributing, and Mike Stanberry of Metro Aviation.
They were praised for their economic impact, leadership skills, and serving as role models.
Golden says he is proud to be a part of Junior Achievement.
Golden said "They teach them to be successful and they're taught that you've got to have a good education, you've got to work hard, and you've got to be a person of integrity."
