Legacy Traditional School Co-founder Aaron Hale Honored among Phoenix Business Journal’s 40 Under 40
Publication recognizes up-and-coming business, community leaders in the Valley
Chandler, AZ – Legacy Traditional School is proud to announce that Executive Director and co-founder Aaron Hale has been selected by Phoenix Business Journal for its 40 Under 40 honor, which recognizes up-and-coming business and community leaders throughout metro-Phoenix.
“It is a great honor to receive this recognition, which I share with and credit to all the administrators, board members, principals, teachers, staff and students who’ve helped make Legacy Traditional School what it is today,” said Hale. “To be part of the 2017 class is especially meaningful, since it was a decade ago that we opened our very first campus – a 400-student facility in Maricopa. Today, Legacy Traditional School spans 12 campuses serving more than 13,000 students across Arizona.”
This is the 17th year of the Phoenix Business Journal’s 40 Under 40 program. Honorees represent a wide range of industries and businesses, from technology startups to non-profits. According to the publication, “one of the notable traits of this class, as those before it, is the honorees’ community involvement that stands out. Their work goes beyond the 9-to-5 world and affects many.”
This year’s 40 Under 40 winners will be celebrated at a networking event and reception in Scottsdale on Aug. 3.
A complete list of the honorees and details about the event can be viewed here.
“I’m grateful to Phoenix Business Journal for the opportunity to take part in this important tradition,” added Hale. “I also want to commend and congratulate my fellow honorees – each of whom is doing outstanding and impactful work for the benefit of Arizona communities. I’m in good company.”
