Each year, Business First recognizes military veterans who have made significant achievements in their business careers at their Salute to Veterans breakfast. This year’s breakfast took place on Tuesday, November 6. Kerry was one of 18 to be honored for their service and accomplishments.
Here’s what the publication has to say about the recognition:
“We believe it takes a lot of courage to fight for your country, and to continue that courage in the working world back home. The people that we will honor have a strong record of innovation and outstanding performance in their work and are actively involved in the Louisville and Southern Indiana community.”
