The Nebraska Junior Chamber at their spring convention inducted Roger Larson of Lincoln and Victor Kensler of Omaha into the Nebraska Jaycee Hall of Fame.
The Hall of Fame recognizes leaders who were active members in their hometown Junior Chamber during their early business career as they supported relevant causes and were later able to advance in the business world in part due to the leadership and skill development training acquired by being active members.
