MILWAUKEE – Four business leaders on Thursday will be inducted into the Wisconsin Business Hall of Fame.

The business leaders to be inducted are: Terry Growcock, The Manitowoc Co., Marvin Schuette, Wausau Homes; William Specht, Cousins Submarines Inc.; and Nathaniel Zelazo, Astronautics Corp. of America, according to a statement.

“It is our honor to induct these distinguished laureates into the Wisconsin Business Hall of Fame,” said Tim Greinert, president of Junior Achievement of Wisconsin. “They created better, more productive lives for their employees who became family, fashioned new and innovative ways of doing business, and set extraordinary goals, and then exceeded them.”

All proceeds from the induction ceremony and dinner benefit Junior Achievement, an organization designed to give young people the knowledge and skills needed for economic success.

In addition, there will be several other awards presented. Both Helen Johnson-Leipold, chairman and CEO of Johnson Outdoors Inc., and Cecelia Gore, executive director of the Milwaukee Brewers Community Foundation, are also award winners.
