The JA Student of the Week is Ellie Pendleton
BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) -
The JA Student of the Week is Ellie Pendleton, a 2nd grader at Potter Gray Elementary. The 2nd grade Junior Achievement program is titled “JA Our Community” which uses posters and games to offer practical information about businesses and the many jobs those businesses offer in a community. Students explore production methods through a simulation game, and they learn about taxes, decision making, and how money flows in an economy. Ellie wants to be a neurosurgeon when she grows up. Ellie’s favorite part of JA is that her mom is the volunteer and they do fun activities. She also said, “JA is awesome! It is fun to learn all about the different jobs and people in our community.”
