Junior Achievement was able to bring JA programs to 586 fifth and sixth grade students at Riverside Intermediate School in Plymouth on May 9th. In order to make it happen, Junior Achievement needed approximately 40 volunteers from the community to volunteer their morning to share JA lessons and their expertise with students!
Four of those volunteers were from the Miller’s Senior Living Campus in Plymouth. Working together with the children were, assisted living resident Nancy Bannon, Director of Support Srevices Mandy Martin, Marketing Director Anna Corbett and Activity Director Cindy Flagg.
Julie Stabrowski JA Program Manager for Marshall County said, “It is a great opportunity to make a difference in the life of a student and in the community in one morning!”
The JA experience in the classroom is designed help the student develop a better understanding of how the real world operates, better prepare students for the world of work, and help students realize the importance of staying in school.
