In recognition of three outstanding and exceptional business leaders in our greater Houston community, Junior Achievement of Southeast Texas is pleased to honor the 2020/2021 JA Hall of Achievement Laureate Class of Mr. Vijay Goradia, Mr. Bobby Tudor, and Ms. Hallie A. Vanderhider. After postponing the annual business recognition Gala in the spring of 2020 due to the pandemic, JA had placed the event on hold until vaccination rates and local case data determined that it was safe to gather in celebration of our mission and inductees. With much anticipation, we’re excited to announce that we’re proceeding as planned for a wonderful induction ceremony to highlight these individuals who exemplify the highest ethical standards, promote the free enterprise system, and the importance of education.

Please join us on Wednesday, November 10, 2021, at the Marriott Marquis Houston from 6:00PM – 9:00PM. To secure your attendance, please consider purchasing a table here to directly support JA’s mission of inspiring young people to own their economic success. All tables seat up to 10 guests, with sponsorship levels ranging from $5,000 to $25,000, and half-table sponsors being offered at $2,500. All event proceeds benefit Junior Achievement of Southeast Texas and the students we serve in our communities.

The evening will begin with a cocktail reception and silent auction in the foyer prior to the main program and dinner in the ballroom. After dinner, a live auction will energize guests with incredible and exclusive opportunities for support before the evening concludes with the induction ceremony of our three honorees:

Mr. Vijay Goradia | Founder & Chairman, Vinmar International, Ltd.

Mr. Bobby Tudor | Chairman, Tudor, Pickering, Holt & Co.

Ms. Hallie A. Vanderhider | Board Member, EQT Corporation, Noble Midstream Partners LP, and Oil States International, Inc.
