The DFW International Hall of Fame recognizes prominent individuals and organizations that have significantly impacted our communities. 2006 honorees included Joe May, Trammell S. Crow, Joe Chow, T. D. Jakes and Ron Anderson. Those inducted into the Hall of Fame have demonstrated dedication to empowering new Americans and minorities, courageous thinking, hard work, innovation, and motivating leadership. They are a true example of the Texas Pioneer Spirit, and a reflection of the pluralism that is the foundation of the American dream.
