The JA Student of the Week is Darrion Wells
BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) -
The JA Student of the Week is Darrion Wells, a 6th grader at Plano Elementary. Darrion completed the Junior Achievement program titled “JA Our Nation.” It focuses on providing practical information about the need for employees who can meet the demands of the 21st century job market, particularly high-growth, high-demand jobs. By program’s end, students will understand the skills, especially in science, technology, engineering, and math, that will make their futures brighter. Darrion wants to be an animator when he grows up because when he watches TV, he is paying attention to the thought and detail put into each character. Darrion’s favorite part of JA was that he was “learning, but it was oddly fun.” He also said, “Well, what can I say except it was a great experience. I really like that it was both fun and educational.”
