The inaugural Wichita Business Journal 40 Under 40 class in 1998 included our very own sassy redhead, and now its first-ever Hall of Fame induction includes her as well. Making the honor even more special, Sonia is longtime friends with the three other inductees. She first met George Laham as a fellow member of that initial 40 Under 40 class and later helped brand his Bradley Fair lifestyle center; worked with U.S. Representative Mike Pompeo when he came to Kansas years ago and started an aerospace company; and serves with John Tomblin on the Wichita Aero Club board. WBJ Publisher John Ek said, “I do believe that these four set the tone and standard for what we are looking to recognize – entrepreneurism, impact on our community, influence on the business community and continuing ability to play a significant role.”
