Dear Friends,

The Florida Council on Economic Education (FCEE) is delighted to host the 21st Annual First Coast Business Hall of Fame on Wednesday, November 20, 2019 at the Hyatt Regency Riverfront. On this special day, Debbie Buckland, Aubrey Edge, and Chris & Robin Sorensen will be inducted as the Class of 2019 in what has become the Must Attend event of the year. This year’s ceremony will celebrate the Class of 2019 and all First Coast Hall of Fame members who are seen as “Visionaries” in their fields.

I’m delighted to Chair the 21st Annual Hall of Fame in recognition of these exceptional business and civic champions. I look forward to a memorable, fun event that will celebrate the accomplishments, leadership and service of the Honorees, and support the critical work of the FCEE in preparing our young people to become productive members of the workforce, responsible consumers and wise investors.

Please join us on November 20th as we honor the Class of 2019, salute 21 years of Hall of Famers, and promote economic and personal finance education in K-12 schools throughout the First Coast and Florida!




John Falconetti
Class of 2018

The Hall of Fame Ceremony does more than just honor First Coast leaders for their significant business accomplishments and civic contributions. It enables the Florida Council to provide critical economic and financial literacy education to K-12 students throughout the First Coast and Florida, those who will take their place as the next generation of informed and responsible citizens and leaders. The Class of 2019 will serve as shining examples of business leadership, free enterprise and community service for the First Coast youth who will follow in their footsteps.
