June 11, 2021 -- Reid Health President/CEO Craig Kinyon was one of four people inducted Thursday night into Junior Achievement's Eastern Indiana Business Hall of Fame.
Kinyon was recognized alongside Roger Golden, President of Golden Engineering in Centerville, and Brent and Kent Fortman, owners of Cutshaw's Market in Cambridge City, during the ceremony at Forest Hills Country Club in Richmond.
"I'm incredibly grateful to be chosen for this honor," Kinyon said. "As much as anything I've done, this is a reflection on the wonderful team members who I've been privileged to work with at Reid and their passion for the communities we serve.
"To put this into the context of a quote, John Donne once said, 'No man is an island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of a continent.'"
According to Junior Achievement, the Business Hall of Fame recognizes individuals who have made significant contributions in their industry in the Eastern Indiana community.
Junior Achievement gives youth a fundamental understanding of business, economics, free enterprise, and the leadership skills needed for a successful future. Programs span K-12 and are provided free of cost to local schools.
"Above all, I am proud to be inducted into the JA Hall of Fame and associated with an organization that focuses on developing youth," Kinyon said. "Everything I have been able to accomplish was the direct result of the family members and mentors in my life who took interest in my success and supported me during my developing years.
"In my adult life, my wife, my children, colleagues, and the leaders I served with were always guiding me to achieve new goals."
Kinyon joined Reid as the health system's first chief financial officer in 1995 and became president/CEO in 2008.
Junior Achievement said Kinyon's "list of accomplishments is very long, and the work he has done has been remarkable." Among the efforts highlighted by the organization were:
