The 31st annual Washington Business Hall of Fame benefiting Junior Achievement of Greater Washington was held on November 28, 2018, at the National Building Museum.
Last Wednesday, over a thousand people flooded the National Building Museum in black-tie attire for the 29th annual Washington Business Hall of Fame Induction.
The event recognized today's exceptional role models and honored them for their professional and philanthropic contributions to the Greater Washington region.
From Junior Achievement of Greater Washington: The Washington Business Hall of Fame recognizes the professional and philanthropic accomplishments of outstanding business leaders in our region who have made significant contributions to the quality of life in Greater Washington. The annual black-tie gala and awards ceremony brings together 1,200 business and civic leaders and raises over $1 million annually to support Junior Achievement of Greater Washington's innovative financial literacy, work readiness, and entrepreneurship programs for K-12 students.
Wednesday night, we went to the National Building Museum for the 29th annual Washington Business Hall of Fame. Among the business leaders inducted into the honor roll were Gensler co-CEO Diane Hoskins, whom we snapped with Rand Construction CEO Linda Rabbitt, who introduced her. Diane is at the helm of the biggest architecture firm in the world.
Katie Reineberg was no stranger to South Lakes High School, but she marveled nonetheless at the expansiveness of the two-story brick building, with its byzantine floor plan, neat clusters of lockers and even a glass-topped hallway illuminated solely by natural lighting.
“We used to call it the prison,” the class of 2006 alumnus joked, referring to the lack of windows before the school underwent extensive renovations just after she graduated.
Yet, despite the facelift, South Lakes High School still hasn’t changed quite as much in the past decade as Reineberg herself.
