95688April 29, 2011, Greencastle, Ind. — R. David Hoover, chairman of Ball Corporation and 1967 graduate of DePauw University, is among six people inducted this week into the Boulder County Business Hall of Fame.  The Daily Times-Call of Longmont, Colorado notes, "The Business Hall of Fame's mission is to honor individuals whose business-related efforts and community involvement have been instrumental in providing direction, energy and support to the shaping of Boulder County."

John Fryar reports, "R. David Hoover, who retired as Ball Corp.'s CEO in January, was unable to attend Wednesday's ceremony. Hoover, who's still Ball's board chairman, had to attend a shareholders' meeting in 5831Broomfield. Standing in for Hoover was his wife, Suzanne ['67], who said she wasn't familiar with the Boulder County Business Hall of Fame until recently but had come away impressed by her first exposure to the pictures and descriptions of past honorees. Suzanne Hoover urged everyone attending the luncheon to examine that Wall of Fame, also in the Plaza Conference Center, for themselves."
