Earlier this week, Jacksonville Jaguars owners Wayne and Delores Barr Weaver (left) were honored by Junior Achievement of North Florida with the 2010 Thompson S. Baker “Solid as a Rock” Award. The award celebrates the accomplishments of individuals who have shown outstanding leadership through civic and philanthropic works that have positively influenced business and education in the Jacksonville community.
“The Weavers have had a substantial impact on Jacksonville since the November 20, 1993 announcement of the franchise of the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Jaguars are without doubt their most public accomplishment,” said Steve St. Amand, President of Junior Achievement of North Florida. “Their most important accomplishments, however, are measured in terms of lives saved, lives changed, low-income homes built, teen pregnancies prevented, equalization of the playing field for women, cancer research, and a myriad of other positives they have brought to our community.”
