Beyond Lemonade Day we also held our first ever Entrepreneurial Excellence Awards on June 3rd in downtown Houston at Jones Hall. We honored an adult entrepreneur, John B. Walker of EnerVest, and a youth entrepreneur, Yash Semlani.
John is the CEO of EnerVest, Ltd. and Executive Chairman of EV Energy Partners, L.P., a NASDAQ-listed master limited partnership.
Yash recently turned 8 years old and finished the 2nd grade. This is the second year that he and his brother, Jay, participated in Lemonade Day through TiE Houston. This year their lemonade stand broke the national record with sales of $5,000 and a profit of $4,500.
