SVP/General Manager Pam Pearson Awarded Prestigious McNaughton Award

Presented at Annual Puget Sound Hall of Fame Awards Ceremony

May 16, 2016 – Q13 FOX and JOEtv SVP/General Manager Pam Pearson, was awarded the prestigious 2016 McNaughton Award from Junior Achievement of Washington at the annual Puget Sound Hall of Fame Awards ceremony on April 21, 2016. The McNaughton Award was established by Junior Achievement of Washington to honor Stanley O. McNaughton, former Chairman of the Board, Director and President of Pemco Financial Services. The award continues to recognize the principles by which he believed such as Create Vision, Lead by Serving, Courage and Conviction, Cultivate Success and Model Integrity. Seattle Mariners’ president Kevin Mather presented the award to Ms. Pearson.

For 29 years, the Junior Achievement Puget Sound Business Hall of Fame has celebrated the innovations of esteemed business leaders in Washington State. This year’s laureates were Bruce R. Kennedy, Alaska Airlines’ first Chairman and CEO, Ivar Haglund, the “King of the Seattle Waterfront,” and Deanna Oppenheimer, formerly of Barclay’s PLC in London who was named the second most powerful woman in banking by American Banker magazine in 2010.

The mission of Junior Achievement is to provide financial literacy education to every student in Washington.  Through the generous dedication of Q13 FOX, a Junior Achievement legacy media partner, thousands of Washington elementary students have the opportunity to experience a glimpse into the careers of news anchors and television professionals.  At the Q13 News Studio inside J.A. Biztown at J.A. World in Auburn, WA, as cameras roll, 5th grade students broadcast daily activities of their classmates’ businesses to the Biztown community in the hands-on experience.

“The commitment and creativity of Pam Pearson and Q13 FOX have elevated JA, and this hallmark event for many years now,” says PSBJ publisher Emory Thomas, Jr. “This celebration would not be the same without them.”
